  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  3. Carefully slice the squash in half through the stem. Using a spoon, scrape out the seeds and discard.
  4. Lightly drizzle the olive oil over the flesh (cut-side) of the spaghetti squash. Then, lightly sprinkle the salt and pepper until evenly coated.
  5. Flip the squash over to be cut-side down on the baking sheet.

  6. Place on the oven and roast until a fork can easily pierce through the skin and flesh, approximately 45 min - 1 hour.
  7. When the squash is cool enough to handle, gently scrape the flesh with a fork to remove it in long strands and then transfer to a medium bowl.
