Say hello to the spaghetti squash! Don't be intimidated by this unusual sounding vege. It is super simple to prepare, yummy and fun (it looks like spaghetti when cooked!).
- 1 spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
- 2 tbsp. olive oil,
- 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
- ½ - 1 tbsp. red pepper flakes/ chili flakes (depending on taste)
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Coat the inside of squash with about 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place squash, cut-side down, on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until squash is tender, about 30 minutes. Cool squash for 10 minutes.
Shred the inside of squash with a fork into ‘spaghetti’ and transfer to a bowl.
Add remaining olive oil, parsley, chili flakes, salt, and pepper to shredded squash and toss to coat.
