As part 2 to my post 'Squash 101', I wanted introduce the Wellness Works! readers to the world of Spaghetti Sqaush! Specifically, how to cook and use it as a pasta! Its a wonderful, vitamin-rich alternative to regular pasta and is loaded with beta-carotene and fiber. It can be used not only in italian dishes but also as a substitute for noodles in asian dishes!
Here is a fast-easy way to cook a spaghetti squash (approx 3lbs):
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Halve the squash lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out and discard seeds from the middle of each half.
Arrange squash in a 9- x 13-inch casserole dish, cut sides down. Pour 1/2 cup water into the dish and bake until just tender, 30 to 35 minutes.
Let us know if you try it and how it turns out! Leave a comment below!
