There are a few methods out there for how to cook spaghetti squash:

  • Sliced into rings and baked
  • Baked or microwaved whole
  • Steamed in a pan of water in the oven
  • Halved and baked cut side down

In my opinion, halved and baked cut side down is the best method. Hands down.


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
  3. Rub olive oil into each squash half, about 1 tsp per squash half should be enough. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then place them cut-side down onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 40-60 minutes, until a fork can easily pierce through the squash’s interior.
  5. Once the squash has finished baking, use a fork to fluff the insides until it has a spaghetti-like texture.
