  • 2 lbs spaghetti squash
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (for serving)
  • 1/4 cup fresh herbs, like parsley (for serving)


  • First preheat your oven to 400F.
  • Now you're going to take your spaghetti squash and with a large chef's knife, cut it vertically right down the middle from stem to tail. Now, this is going to be a little tough to do.. so cut it slowly.
  • With a spoon scoop out the seeds from the middle of the squash.
  • You don't want to spoon into the actual flesh but just get all the seeds and stringy bits out.
  • Drizzle the insides of the squash with a little olive oil and place the squash flesh side down in a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  • Bake at 400F for 30 to 45 minutes until the flesh is tender. If the squash is still a little hard, put it back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
  • With a fork begin scraping the inside of the squash, separating the flesh into spaghetti-like strands.
  • Continue scraping until all of the flesh is scraped into long noodles.
  • Serve immediately with a little butter salt and fresh herbs!
