When life gives you a ginormous spaghetti squash what do you do?
Well, in my case I wait a few weeks trying to figure out what to do with it while hoping it doesn't rot on my counter.
The spaghetti squash you see above came in one of my Washington's Green Grocer deliveries (which I pay for: this is not a sponsored post or anything) and I was planning on using a new cooking method my friend Cecilia told me about in which you roast the spaghetti squash in a baking dish with a bit of water while covering the entire concoction with aluminum foil.
Well....when it came time to try Cecilia's method, I got scared: I could barely cut into the squash because it was so HUGE. I did not want to lose any of my fingers or majorly cut my hand. Instead, I decided to try something new (at least to me!): roasting the entire spaghetti squash whole. After all, people have done this with cauliflower...what's the worse thing that can happen?
Can You Roast A Spaghetti Squash Whole? Yes You Can!
1) Preheat the oven to 425
2) Put whole spaghetti squash directly on the oven rack and roast for about an hour, rotating it every 20 minutes or so
3) Allow the spaghetti squash to cool slightly, then cut in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and use the flesh to make Spaghetti Squash Latkes
