Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash Microwave Instructions for Squash: Make cuts all around the spaghetti squash with a knife. Place in microwave in a microwavable dish and microwave on medium-high in 5 minute increments. Rotate spaghetti squash every 5 minutes until soft (total time should be anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the spaghetti squash). Remove from microwave. Let cool for 10 minutes. Cut in half and remove seeds, and then separate the strands.
Place on glass baking dish: Now get creative….. Pizza Spaghetti Squash Top each half with 1/2 cup pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, and pizza toppings then return to oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. (Pizza toppings: pepperoni, black olives, ham, sausage, peppers, etc) *********************************************************************************** Spaghetti Squash With Meat Sauce Add your favorite spaghetti sauce and top with cheese *********************************************************************************** Spaghetti Squash Casserole With Ricotta and Spinach in a large bowl, combine the ricotta, egg, spinach, garlic, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper.With a fork, gently scrape out the strands of flesh and add to the ricotta mixture.
