This spaghetti squash recipe smells improvisation: kind of “what if” idea… So, what if we replaced usual spaghetti pasta by baked spaghetti squash flesh to make a fragrant bolognese dish? So let’s take a deep dive into the unknown, at the end this recipe reveals to be a real treat, believe me!

Cooking Instruction

Cook the squash:
There are three cooking methods:

  • Boiling water: soak the pumpkin in a large pot of boiling water and cook for 20 to 40 min. The squash is normally cooked when you can easily pierce it with a knife.
  • Oven: Cut squash in half, remove the central part with the seeds and place both halves in the oven for 20 min.
  • In the microwave: pierce the squash, cook it intermittently for 10 minutes so not to burn it.

Baking allows a better control of the doneness, th

at’s why I prefer this method.

Cut squash in half, remove the central part with a large spoon (discard this part).

Lay the halves on a baking dish.
Brush with olive oil.
Cook for about 20 minutes (when the filaments are detached, the squash is cooked).

Remove the “spaghetti” filaments with a fork and book them.
