How To Make Noodles Out Of Spaghetti Squash

Step 2: Slice an Inch Off the Top and Bottom of the Spaghetti Squash, Then Slice Down the Middle

The only slightly difficult part of making delicious noodles out of your spaghetti squash is cutting it.

Grab a large, sharp kitchen knife and take your time. Apply some strength and carefully slice the squash lengthwise. It is best to remove the bottom so that it stays stable during the cutting process, even though some people prefer to keep the top in place.

Always remember to move slowly and with the largest knife you have. It might take a few minutes, but putting safety first is always preferable to running the risk of an accident.

Benefits of Using Spaghetti Squash for Noodles

Spaghetti squash is a lot healthier than regular noodles, which is one of its main advantages. Selecting squash means you’re substituting a hearty helping of veggies for processed flour.

Spaghetti squash offers a double nutritional boost because it is high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Anticipate adequate levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, and other healthy minerals.

If you would rather watch than read, this page has a video that will walk you through the entire process of cooking spaghetti squash.

Squash can be cooked in a variety of ways, but I think baking it in the oven brings out the most flavor. Although the question of whether microwaving retains nutrients is still up for debate (I believe it does), roasting spaghetti squash in the oven will always produce the best flavor and texture.

Step 4: Brush the Inside of the Squash with Olive Oil

After applying a little extra virgin olive oil to the spaghetti squash’s cut flesh, set the squash’s cut side down on the baking sheet covered with foil.

Expert advice: If necessary, add one or more tablespoons to the baking sheet to retain moisture in arid climates. Although I usually avoid doing this because I think it can make the noodles too wet, this could be useful in extremely dry climates.
