How to Perfectly Bake Spaghetti Squash
No more mushy broken strands of spaghetti squash with this easy-squeezy technique. Cutting the squash in rounds allows you to create long strands of al dente spaghetti.

  1. Smallish spaghetti squashes are easier to cut for this recipe. Use due caution when cutting the squash!
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Slice the ends off the squash and discard. Then, cut about 1½ inch wide rounds of the squash (I make 4 cuts in a small squash) and set on a baking dish lined with unbleached parchment paper, for easy cleanup. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds.
  4. Bake until the strands are tender but not mushy, about 50-60 minutes. If you prefer your spaghetti squash more firm, reduce baking time to about 40 minutes. Use a fork to pull the strands into the center of each round. This creates long strands of spaghetti.
