So I have had a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter for about…oh…well awhile.  It’s pretty hardy, so it hasn’t gone bad.  What have I been waiting for?  Well, I’ve basically been pretty lazy to bake it for an hour.  Last night, I finally decided to look up a good spaghetti squash recipe.  Pinterest and Nom Nom Paleo saved the day!  I found a way to just stick it in the microwave and VOILA!  It is ready for me in 10 minutes 🙂

Right – One half untouched after microwaving
Middle – Partially scraped
Left – The final product!

This was seriously the easiest thing I could have done.  All I had to do was cut it in half, brush some oil on it, add salt and pepper, and microwave it for 8-12 minutes!  Scraping it out took a little extra time for me (it was my first time…yes, I’m a spaghetti squash virgin), but it was fun!  It’s amazing how it all comes out in these beautiful yellow strands!  I was able to put it all into a tupperware.  I added some more salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes for seasoning.  I had a little taste, and it was great!  I especially loved the texture.

Ready to eat!

I’m SO excited to have this during the week!!  Easy, healthy, and delicious 🙂
