  • 1 spaghetti squash for every 4-6  people
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 T olive oil

Cut the spaghetti squash in half, length-wise.

Scrape out the seeds. Keep them, by setting them aside, if you want to toast them later.

Drizzle half of a tablespoon of olive oil over each squash half. Use your hands to spread and coat it evenly.

Divide the minced garlic in half and rub it on each squash half.

Sprinkle each squash half with salt and pepper.

I love these noodles. They are the perfect combination of savory sweet.

Serve my Quick Spaghetti Recipe over the noodles.

Top with a bit of Parmesan cheese if you want.

My kids, for the most part, still want pasta. My husband eats half real pasta and half spaghetti squash pasta with his helping.
