Making Spaghetti squash for supper, I can never remember how long or to what temperature I should cook it... cut halves up or down? How do you cook yours? Thanks

I bake mine whole with just a few deep stabs with a sharp knife to let it vent. I usually use 350 degrees and it depends on the size as to how long. When it feels soft I take it out and cool it enough to handle then split it open and deseed it and the spagetti strings shred out nicely. I think it has more flavor this way and it is easy to cut open, I do this with all hard shelled squash if it is small enough to fit my oven. You can freeze any cooked squash.

I puncture the squash, microwave whole for about 8 minutes, then cut in half lengthwise (easier now that skin is softer) and scoop out seeds. Then microwave each 1/2 squash for about another 10 mins. Then you can use a fork to get the "strings" out.

In the oven I put my cut spaghetti squash face down in about 1 inch of water in a corning ware dish at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 30 minutes
