squash1This is by far the easiest recipe I have posted to this point, and could possibly be the easiest one I ever do post. Last week was the first time I ever cooked spaghetti squash. I guess I always figured it would be too hard, so I just never tried. Well, I’m glad I did. I love this stuff! The first time I made it, I served it with my homemade marinara sauce and turkey meatballsdelicious. But, it’s also pretty good on it’s own with a little salt and pepper.

Ingredients:

1 Spaghetti squash cut in half vertically and seeded
Salt and pepper to taste
~1/4 C water
Other seasonings depending on what your meal is: Italian seasoning, parsley, oregano, etc.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place ~1/4 C of water in the bottom of a baking dish (enough to cover the bottom). Place the squash cut side down in the pan and bake for 30-40 min until a sharp knife can be easily inserted to the outside with little resistance.
