SPAGHETTI SQUASH WITH SUNDRIED TOMATOES
How do I choose a good spaghetti squash?
- Ripe spaghetti squash will have a golden yellow or dark yellow color.
- Choose a firm spaghetti squash that feels heavy for its size.
- The stem should be firm, dry, and rounded.
- It shouldn’t have any cracks or soft/bruised spots.
How do you know when spaghetti squash is ready?
To check for doneness, flip one half of the spaghetti squash over and run a fork down the top edge of the squash. The squash is done cooking when the fork easily forms spaghetti-like strands with a slightly firm texture. Spaghetti squash is meant to be slightly firm but not hard. When overcooked, spaghetti squash becomes mushy.
How long can you keep a spaghetti squash last before cooking it?
How do I reheat Spaghetti Squash with Sundried Tomatoes?
When reheating I like to scoop out the amount I’m going to eat and put it on a microwave-safe plate. I then dampen a paper towel and place it over the portion. I microwave for 30-second increments and stir between each time until it’s hot.
Can I add a protein to Spaghetti Squash with Sundried Tomatoes?
Yes. Grilled or rotisserie chicken is good as is Italian sausage. I would add the protein after it is cooked to the top when served.
