|"Spaghetti Squash" uploaded to flickr by semarr|
Today's tip doesn't come from me or any magazine. It is courtesy of my mother in law who just learned that she loved spaghetti squash.
I've always cut my spaghetti squash in half and then baked in until it was tender (about 40 or so minutes at 350 F). But then my mother in law told me that you can get the same result if you cut it in half and microwave each half for about 8 minutes. That is a real time saver! And then I did some research and found out that you can microwave the whole thing (without cutting it) for 10-12 minutes and then let it sit for another 5 minutes, cut it in half and you are good to go!
How do you cook squash? Conventional oven? Microwave? I even read about cooking it in a slow cooker . . .
