Finally got up my nerve to make this and it was a breeze, and also a lot of fun! I tried to fool my son but he wasn't fooled. He actually liked it and went back for seconds. Even the baby liked it! I think we've got a winner!

Ingredients

1 medium
spaghetti squash
1/2 to 1 c
water
marinara sauce of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash and dry spaghetti squash. Cut off the bottom stem and discard. Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and filaments completely and discard.
2
Place the squash facedown in a 9x13-inch baking pan. Add enough water to the pan to halfway cover the squash.
3
Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 35 minutes. Stick squash with a knife to test for doneness. If the knife meets no resistance, the squash is done.
4
Allow to cool somewhat until you can handle it. With a fork, gently pull the flesh from the squash into a large bowl, using a downward motion. It will come off in long strands that resemble spaghetti.
5
Keep warm while you make your favorite marinara sauce. You may use ready-made sauce if you prefer, or make your own.
