Method

  • This can be either baked in the oven or cooked in the microwave. For both methods, poke several holes in squash to release steam as it cooks. Cook for about 15 minutes in the microwave until completely soft. Also you can bake in the oven at 375 F for about 45-55 minutes until cooked through.
  • Let squash cool a bit. Cut in half, remove seeds and scoop out spaghetti. Place in a large bowl and discard seeds. Toss with olive oil, garlic salt & pepper.

  • Set oven to broil with the rack in the middle. Plate spaghetti squash in oven safe bowls. Top with marinara sauce & mozzarella cheese. Broil about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted & golden brown. Watch carefully so it does not burn.
