2021 Food Box #20 - Roasted Spaghetti Squash

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash I have a strong preference for one method. My preferred method reduces the amount of moisture in the squash and yields golden, caramelized edges that add extra flavour. Here’s my trick: Cut the spaghetti squash in half from the stem end to the base, rub the inside lightly with olive oil, and roast it cut-side down on a baking sheet. Reasons to Love Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti squash is a nutritious winter vegetable that offers lots of fiber, beta-carotene, folate and more. It offers a really fun, spaghetti-like texture and built-in bowl shape. Spaghetti squash is a good stand-in for pasta, and also plays nicely with a variety of other flavours. It goes particularly well with these ingredients:

  • Tomatoes and tomato sauce (marinara)

  • Parmesan or other cheeses

  • Garlic and onions

  • Basil and thyme

  • Bell pepper

  • Carrots

  • Mushrooms

  • Vinegar: balsamic, sherry, red or white wine vine


  • Prep Time: 5 minutes

  • Cook Time: 40 minutes

  • Yield: Number of servings depends on size of squash

  • Method: Roasted

  • Cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, rub a little olive oil and salt on the inside, and roast in the oven cut-side down on a baking sheet at 350-375 F degrees until the edges are browned and caramelized. Serve.
