If the outside is no longer a light shade of yellow and has brown or darker spots, it is likely starting to spoil. It can also start to crack when becoming bad.

  1. This is so awesome! Spaghetti squash takes forever to cook in the oven. However, I tried this and it wasn’t cooked in 5 min. I had to put it back in for another 7 min

  2. What size is do you have? I have the large. I would like to cook 2 full squash at a time.. family of 7 here. Suggestions on cook time if doubling?

  3. 5 stars
    I love butter on my spaghetti squash. I could eat the whole thing by myself. Some people like marinara sauce on theirs, doesn’t really appeal to me. Thank you for the recipe, I am going to try it, if I can get it cut in half. LOL. Chris-cn97960@gmail.com

  4. I make mine into hashbrowns so yummy. Can’t wait to try a faster way to cook the squash.

  5. Great idea Marci! This is my favorite way to cook spaghetti squash. I hope you like it as well!
