An easy guide to roasting spaghetti squash!

Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 3 minutes


  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
  2. Take your spaghetti squash and cut off both ends so you have a flat surface. Cut your squash in half lengthwise. Remove seeds.
  3. Add your olive oil to your squash and, using your hands or a silicone brush, thoroughly coat your squash with olive oil.
  4. Add salt and pepper to your squash, then place squash face-down (so that the liquid runs out of the squash onto your baking sheet while cooking).
  5. Roast for an hour, until squash is easily pierced with a fork.
  6. Let cool. Then use a fork to scrap insides of squash into a bowl.
  7. Top with your favorite ingredients.
