How to Make APPLE STUFFED SPAGHETTI SQUASH (SALLYE)
- Preheat oven to 375º F
Wash and rinse squash
Cut squash in half lengthwise
Remove seeds and membranes
Place halves in baking dish cut side up
Rub squash with salt
- Peel and core apples, cut into bite sized chunks
Stuff each half of squash with apple chunks (it's okay if they are heaped up above the edge of the squash, they will cook "down".
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter and add brown sugar and spices. DO NOT BOIL. Stir constantly just until sugar and spices are dissolved into butter
Remove from heat and drizzle over apples and squash.
Cover loosely with heavy duty foil and place in preheated oven
Cook for approximately 35 minutes, remove foil and cook 5 to 10 more minutes until apples and squash are nice and tender
- Remove from oven and pull apart squash into spaghetti like strings, blending with apple mixture.
Serve while still warm.
