Microwave a Complete Spaghetti Squash Dinner In 15 Minutes

Your favorite pasta impersonator just got a whole lot easier to make. In about 15 minutes in the microwave, you can turn a rock-hard spaghetti squash into a bowl of tender “noodles,” ready for some sauce. I’ll even throw in a trick for making it easier to slice the squash in half. What are you waiting for?

Typically I just quarter it, remove any seeds, etc and throw it in some boiling water for ~10 minutes. Pull them out, let them cool, hand squeeze the water out, and use a fork to pull the noodles.

I also love cutting acorn squash in half, adding a little butter and throwing it in the microwave for a minute or two. It’s already in a bowl and it’s really easy to clean up.
