Although its more widely available during the Fall, you can usually find spaghetti squash all year round. I went to Whole Foods and picked a nice bright yellow one out for my dinner.
Many people say to split the squash in half lengthwise to cut the cooking time, but I could barely get my knife through the squash. So I'll just skip that step and take the extra cook time lol.
Microwaving Spaghetti Squash:
Step 1: Take a fork and poked holes all over the squash (otherwise you will have exploded squash all over your microwave from the pressure).

Step 2: Put the squash in a microwaveable dish and place it in the microwave for 10-12 minutes. Optional: you can add a cup of water to the bottom of the dish and/or cover the squash with a damp paper towl. If you split the squash in half, place it cut side down in the dish with a cup of water to the dish and microwave for 5 minutes.

|When the squash is slight soft and can be easily pierced, its done!|

Step 6: Dress with flavoring of your choice! Some common toppings include butter, garlic and oregano, salt and pepper, or my topping of choice some marinara sauce and a dollop of Greek yogurt! Dinner is done and ready to go. Enjoy!
