How do you cook a whole spaghetti squash?
There are actually quite a few different ways that you can cook up a spaghetti squash. You can roast it in the oven, where you’d have it roasting face down so that the liquid inside keeps the spaghetti squash meat moist and tender. Simply cooking it on medium heat in the oven on a baking sheet is all that some of these recipes call for!
Another way that you can cook spaghetti squash is by using your Instant Pot or your slow cooker, too. I’ve even witnessed a squash being grilled up on the BBQ grill as well.
