Eating healthy is easy if you’ve already cooked, portioned + packed your meals. That’s why we have spaghetti squash on our minds. Spaghetti squash is a great alternative to regular pasta + cooking one squash leaves you with enough food for multiple meals [#MEALPREP].
There are a ton of different ways to cook a spaghetti squash, but we like to keep things quick + easy. Here’s how to cook a spaghetti squash in the microwave with little to no effort. ; ) It’s far less intimidating than it looks — I promise!
1] Use your guns to cut the ends off of the spaghetti squash. Then cut the squash in half.
3] Fill a microwave safe dish with water. Place the squash in the water face down [We did one side at a time because our microwave isn’t big enough to fit both.] + microwave for 8 – 12 minutes. *Time will vary depending on the size of the squash. When the rind is soft, it’s done.*
++ there you have it! We love spaghetti squash because it’s incredibly versatile. You’re feeling Italian? Spaghetti squash with garlic, spinach + tomatoes. In the mood for Thai?
