  • 1 Whole Spaghetti Squash


  • Poke a few holes in squash with a fork. Place whole spaghetti squash in a large stock pot filled with water. Put lid on and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, rotate squash every 5 minutes.
  • After 15 min, pierce skin lightly with a paring knife. You are looking for very little resistance in the skin and flesh. Once it feels soft, it is done! (20-30 minutes depending on size of your squash)
  • Remove squash from boiling water and let cool for at least 10 minutes, or until you can handle squash.
  • Halve, remove seed, and use a fork to loosen all the spaghetti strands.
