Martha Stewart offers a simple recipe for spaghetti squash, which involves roasting the spaghetti squash whole in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until it is tender. The cook uses a knife to prick the spaghetti squash all over before placing it inside the oven.
When the cook takes the spaghetti squash out of the oven, he allows it to cool before cutting it in half and scooping out the seeds. He may then scrape the flesh with a fork to create long strands, which can be useful in a number of other recipes. For example, he may cook the spaghetti squash strands in a skillet together with butter, garlic, shallot, herbs and cheese to create a meal.
A simple recipe for spaghetti squash is also available at the Better Homes and Gardens website. The cook pierces the spaghetti squash several times with a knife before cooking it in the microwave oven on the high setting until it is tender. The cook uses a food processor to create a pesto, of which the main ingredients are arugula, basil, cheese, walnuts and olive oil. It also includes seasonings of crushed red pepper, garlic and salt. Finally, the cook uses a fork to obtain the flesh of the spaghetti squash, which he places into bowls and tops with pesto.
