Description (Some HTML is OK)

In North America spaghetti squash is really easy to find, in the UK it's nearly impossible. Imagine my delight when our local Waitrose began stocking this amazingly tasty but difficult to find squash. It's really easy to make and is a great substitute for spaghetti if you're on a diet and not allowed to have carbs. Personally I like it plain, with a little butter!


Makes 2 servings

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • Butter

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

Cut the squash in half, lengthwise...and remove the seeds (like you would a pumpkin). Place on a roasting tray, middle up and bake it in the oven for 30-40mins at 400C or gas mark 6. When it's ready the squash will be soft (but not mushy). Use a fork to scrape out the inside of the squash, the strands will come out easily if you've cooked it properly. Add a little butter and serve. You can also add a tomato sauce.

    Simple preparation is yummy, but if you want to dress it up a bit, try adding - a little more butter - nutmeg to taste - a bit of salt and pepper - roasted cashews - 1/2 to 1 cup, depending on how fond you are of cashews, and the size of the squash
