  • Slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
  • Drizzle the inside of the squash with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place the spaghetti squash halves cut side down on the baking sheet and use a fork to poke holes.
  • Roast for 30 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned on the outside. Test by piercing through the skin with a fork. If it pierces easily, it's ready. The time will vary depending on the size of your squash.
  • Remove from the oven and flip the squash over cut side up. Use a fork to scrape and fluff the strands from the sides and bottom of the squash.
