    Another super easy and quicker way to cook spaghetti squash is to cut it in half and scoop out the seeds as always. Then put it cut side up (skin side down) in a big saute pan with a lid. Add about and inch of water to the pan and bring up to a rapid simmer. Simmer for about 20 min with the lid on. Mine are usually done by this point, I just check to see that it shreds easily with a fork. Much faster than waiting for the oven to heat up and then roasting for close to an hour!

      Hi there Audrey! Oh wow…I sure didn’t know that! And you are right, that is much quicker than using an oven and I will have to try that next time I make it.

      Thanks so much for sharing that tip ;)

    The last time I purchased a spaghetti squash, it had microwave cooking instructions on the little sticker. It said to cut in half, remove seeds abd place cut side down in a microwave safe dish with a couple tablespoons of water. Then cover with saran wrap and microwave for 10 minutes

      Hi there Crystal! Believe it or not, I haven’t owned or used a microwave in about 6 years or so, but thanks for sharing those instructions for those readers that do use microwaves ;)
