The first thing that you need to know is... spaghetti squash are assholes. They're yummy as hell, but they make you put in some mad work before you can nosh. Let me tell you there's been a couple close calls with my fingers and hands while trying to cut a spaghetti squash in half, not to mention almost dislocating my shoulder and cutting my neck (don't ask). But on the fun side, I have created several brand new curse words.

I'm not gonna lie, these little hellions still give me some trouble here and there, but I have found a way to make it much easier (and less swear-y) to cut them.

 In case you needed a new way to battle these warrior veggies, here's my trick to cutting and cooking my spaghetti squash.

ROASTING SPAGHETTI SQUASH INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.


 Spaghetti squash can be a real bitch to cut. I'm sure those of you out there who've tried it before can attest to this! This tip may save you from losing a body part.

CUTTING TIP

2. Chop the tip of the squash off first and then cut the squash in half length-wise. This makes it easier for the knife to sink its teeth into these stubborn suckers because you have a little bit of the inside flesh to start your cut off with.

3. Scoop out and discard seeds.



4. Rub a little bit of olive oil over the squash and sprinkle them with salt and pepper (if desired).



5. Place the squash cut-down on a baking sheet and bake for 45-55 minutes or until the flesh is tender.



6. Let squash cool until you can pick them up and then scrape out the 'spaghetti' with a fork. If you'll be scraping it right away, wear oven mitts!

 

EASY PEASY... AND YUMMY!

You can make a ton of yummy recipes with spaghetti squash or you can eat it plain (like I do most of the time). I sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and Himalayan salt on it and go to town. OMG so good!

...And this recipe? Forget about it. There's no words to describe how good these zucchini boats are!



...Believe me, there's a reason I named this Crack Salsa. I've lost count of how many people I've gotten addicted to this stuff. Even my hubby who hates beans is a total addict! Total crack, I tell you! You can't stop. Thank God it's healthy!
