How to Bake Spaghetti Sqaush

Baking spaghetti squash is a fun and easy way to be a FarmerChef.  If you have kids, get them involved in the part where you  “play” with your food by shredding the baked squash onto a plate and then topping it with this recipe from GamerKitchen chef, Luke.

Before turning the squash halves fleshy side down, brush them with oil and fresh pressed garlic.

Even if you live in city like I do, you can buy the your squash at a farmers market and place it in a tiny apartment-sized oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

When it comes out steaming hot, let it cool until you are able to handle the squash and then scrape it with a fork.

Thank you Mother Nature for making a vegetable act like a yummy pasta dish!

    I think I like it better than the gluten free noodles for spaghetti. Much more flavorful. Will have to get some more to bake. We picked the butternut squash and had some this week. Real yummy!

      That is a good point that I should have mentioned in the post. It makes the meal naturally gluten free!
