Cook Time
  1. Microwave the spaghetti squash for 1 minute. Cut the ends out. And with a sharp knife cut across the center. Though I cut vertically, somewhere else I read that cutting horizontally gives a longer spaghetti strands. So you can explore either of the options.
  2. Scoop out the seeds thoroughly.
  3. Lay the two halves on the aluminum foil in a baking tray. Bake for approx 30 min at 325 degrees.
  4. Switch the squash upside down and cook for another 20 min in the oven.
  5. Remove from the oven and use a fork to pick through the meat of the squash. This will release the spaghetti strands.
  6. Scoop out all of the spaghetti strands.
  7. In a wok or a large pan, heat the olive oil. Add green onions and green chillies and saute a bit.
  8. Add broccoli florets and saute for 5-6 minutes on high flame.
  9. Add red papers, salt, and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  10. Finally add the spaghetti squash to the mix and mix in all the vegetables, and cook for 3-4 minutes on high flame.
  11. Serve the Spaghetti Squash with some soup and bread or having it just by itself is quite tasty.
Recipe Notes


One more tool that can be used to cut easily is to poke toothpick all around and which will assist and guide you in cutting the squash easily and in proportion. A dash of lime and ginger may also taste good with this.

Topping of some grated cheese should also be a good addition, as might be baking it with grated cheese on top.

Instinct Factor

Cutting the spaghetti squash is the most challenging aspect . Once that is mastered, rest is very easy. Once this has been learned you will be tempted to use the spaghetti squash or the normal spaghetti and benefit from the high nutrient content and high water content in the squash.

Feel Factor

Felt triumphant on being able to cut the spaghetti squash with just the knife, as came across the pre- heating in microwave recipe later! It was mesmerizing to see the strands come out of the starch in the spaghetti squash, almost like a magic trick! Some spice of black pepper, green chillies, green onions and broccoli gave it a flavor of Pad Thai noodles, giving the spaghetti squash and exciting flavor. Its healthy, its light, its flavorful, its colorful and it is common sense to eat fall colored vegetables in fall season! Thoroughly enjoyed exploring, cooking, and tasting this exotic looking vegetable dish with a highly popular pasta name!
