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!

How to Make SPAGHETTI SQUASH WITH MARINARA SAUCE

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.
