Tender oven roasted Spaghetti Squash is the ultimate gluten-free pasta alternative! It’s super easy to make and cook, plus it tastes amazing with all your favorite pasta toppings.


  • 35 lb. spaghetti squash
  • 34 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt & pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Next, cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise with a sharp knife.
  3. Scoop out the inside seeds and throw away.
  4. Use a brush to lightly season the squash flesh with olive oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  5. Place squash on a baking sheet flesh side down and roast for 45-50 minutes, or until flesh is easily punctured with a fork.
  6. Remove from oven and let sit until the squash is cool enough to handle, about 3-4 minutes.
  7. With a fork scrap the inside of the squash gently to create noodles, if “noodles” are clumping together separate with a hand. Place in a serving bowl.
