Spaghetti Squash

There are words, that I think are fun to say. There are also foods, that I think are fun to work with. Spaghetti Squash would be one of them. It is so incredible how with just a fork the squash is easily separated and looks exactly like spaghetti! This is a great vegetable for winter and very simple to work with.
You can either cut in half and roast or roast uncut. I roasted my uncut, I am in dyer need to have all of my knives sharpened.

Preheat Oven 375

One Medium Spaghetti Squash (about 2.5 pounds)
1 Teaspoon of Vegetable Oil (Brush the squash with before baking)
3-4 Tablespoons of Butter
1 Teaspoon of Kosher Salt
1 Teaspoon of Pepper
If needed add more salt and pepper

Prepare the squash for roasting by brushing it with oil and piercing it. Roast squash for about 1 hour. Let cool for about 5 minutes before working with. Cut the squash in half and discard the seeds. (You can roast any kind of squash seed just like a pumpkin.) With a fork comb through the squash and pull it from the skin. Season with the butter, salt and pepper. Serve warm.
