    How to make:

  • Cut off top and bottom of the squash
  • Rest squash on cutting board one of the cut sides down and cut down the middle
  • Scoop out the seeds and place in a bowl to roast later on
  • Drizzle olive oil in the squash, rub it in and sprinkle with sea salt. Flip the squash over and repeat on the other side.
  • Do for both halves
  • Place on a baking sheet cut side down, skin side up
  • Place in oven at about 375-400 degrees for about 30-45 minutes
  • It is ready when your fork can easily pierce through the skin and squash
  • Remove from the oven and place on cutting board skin side down
  • Use your fork to gently scrape out the squash. It should be stringy like spaghetti
  • Place in a bowl on the side
  • Top as you’d like or mix it up with regular pasta to lighten up the dish
