Spaghetti Squash


Spaghetti squash has a chameleon quality to it, ’cause it cooks up with the same taste as our favorite pasta dishes. Our easy-to-make spaghetti squash recipe will have even your finicky veggie eaters cleaning their plates.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 40 min   
What You'll Need:

    1 medium spaghetti squash
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh garlic
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil


Fill a soup pot with one inch of water and place whole squash in water. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, and cook 20 to 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a knife. Remove squash to a cutting board and allow to cool slightly.
    Cut squash in half lengthwise then use a spoon to remove and discard seeds. Scrape inside of squash with a fork, shredding into noodle-like strands.
    Place shredded squash in a large skillet and heat over high heat 2 to 4 minutes to eliminate excess water. Add remaining ingredients except basil and cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, or until heated through. Stir in basil and serve.
