Spaghetti Squash Recipe Ingredients:
  • 3 lb. spaghetti squash, pierced
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. apple cider or white wine
  • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning OR mixture of oregano, basil, and thyme
  • 3/4 c. Parmesan cheese
Spaghetti Squash Recipe Instructions:
Cook squash either by boiling or microwaving 18 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter and add remaining ingredients to butter. Bring to a simmer. Cut squash; remove seeds, remove spaghetti strands, and toss with sauce. Serves 6.



Spaghetti Squash Recipe Ingredients:
  • small yellow squash (they are more tender)- 2 for 1 serving- increase quantity as needed
  • any type of pasta noodle (whole grain preferred)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • butter (optional)
  • McCormick Pizza Seasoning (spice grinder) or other Italian seasoning
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Spaghetti Squash Recipe Instructions:
First of all wash the squash, and slice into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick pieces. If it is too thin, the squash will be soggy.

And then steam or boil the squash with a little olive oil and the Italian seasoning of your choice, add a few pats of butter if you dare!

Next is to boil the pasta according to package directions, add olive oil for flavor (and to keep pasta from sticking together); set aside.

Drain most of the liquid from squash; I like to reserve a little for flavor.

Toss the squash with Parmesan cheese and serve on a bed of pasta. Add more Italian seasoning if you choose.

This is a super simple recipe, but I love it in the Summer when I have fresh squash from the garden.

Enjoy the spaghetti squash !
