Spaghetti squash: How the heck do I cook this stuff?


OK... spaghetti squash is as hard as a rock before it is cooked. So, how in the world do you cook this stuff that everyone seems to be raving about? Of course I have an answer for you.... You use the crockpot! 



Spaghetti squash + Autumn = Crockpot cooking




Plug the slow cooker in and turn it onto high setting, dump 1 cup of water into it, poke knife holes into the squash, place it inside, cover with the lid and let it steam/cook for a few hours. It is as easy as that! 

It will be hot when it is cooked, so remove it using tongs....yes, lesson learned the hard way : )

Cut it in half, remove the seeds with a spoon and then spoon out the spaghetti squash into a large bowl. 

At this point, you can add whatever you like.

For something like the picture you see above:

1 spaghetti squash, cooked and shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
3 tbsp. butter or olive oil
Salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley, to taste

Add butter/oil and mix well.
Add cheese and spices.
Mix well and serve.

How easy is that? Want to add protein? Add cooked shrimp, lemon juice from a lemon and whala...a complete meal!
