How to Prepare Spaghetti Squash
Method 1 (My way):
Puncture the skin of a spaghetti squash with a knife in 3-4 places. Cook it in the microwave for three minutes, or until it is soft enough to cut easily. Allow it to cool so you can handle it comfortably. Cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds and discard them.
Place squash halves cut-side down on a plate and return them to the microwave for another 8-10 minutes, or bake in a conventional oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Cool. Run a fork over the flesh to separate it into spaghetti-like strands and scoop them out of the shells.
