Simple Spaghetti Squash

I love Spaghetti Squash! I actually love most squash but spaghetti squash holds a special place in my heart. You can use it in place of actual spaghetti pasta and make a sauce but I love it super simple with a little vegan margarine and salt. Now that we are officially in winter squash season I will be sure to make it often! I have already made this twice in the last two weeks 🙂

Simple Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash
Vegan Margarine about 1/4 cup (depending on the size of your squash and taste)
Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut slits into the squash so it can breathe during cooking. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 50 min – 1:10. You can check after 45 minutes by cutting in half. Once the squash is fully cooked scoop out the seeds and then take a fork and rake against the squash to “release” the spaghetti. Place in a bowl with the margarine and salt to taste. Enjoy 🙂 Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to a week but also freezes beautifully!
