How To Cook A Spaghetti Squash In Microwave
All you need to know about: How To Cook A Spaghetti Squash In Microwave.
Preparing the Spaghetti Squash
Before you can cook spaghetti squash in the microwave, you must prepare the squash for cooking. Start by washing the outside of the squash with warm soapy water and a scrub brush. Cut the squash in half lengthwise with a sharp knife. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and discard them.
Cooking the Spaghetti Squash in the Microwave
Once the squash is prepared, you are ready to cook it in the microwave. Place the squash halves cut-side-down in a microwave-safe dish. Fill the dish with 1/2 inch of water. Place the dish in the microwave and cook on high power for 10 minutes. Check the squash with a fork – it should be tender when pierced. If the squash is still too firm, cook it in the microwave for an additional three to five minutes.
Finishing the Spaghetti Squash
Once the squash is tender, use a fork to scrape the strands of the squash away from the skin. Discard the skin, and serve the spaghetti squash strands as a side dish, or as a pasta substitute in your favorite recipes. Enjoy!
