  • 2 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  • Slice the spaghetti squash in half and using a spoon, scoop out all the seeds and fibers from the center of each squash.
  • Drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil between the 4 halves of spaghetti squash. Season all pieces of spaghetti squash with salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Place the spaghetti squash on a baking sheet, flesh side down on the baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 30 - 45 minutes. Check the meat of the spaghetti squash with a fork at 30 minutes for tenderness. If it is tender, the spaghetti squash is done. Depending on the size of the spaghetti squash, it can take up to 45 minutes for the squash to completely roast.
