2. Microwave Cooking

Sometimes there is not enough time to wait for a spaghetti squash to bake in the oven. The good news is that using the microwave is just as easy, but takes a fraction of the time.

Similar to the baking instructions, cut the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. After lightly seasoning the inside of each with olive oil, salt, and pepper, place the squash in a microwavable dish, cut side down.

Set the microwave to cook for 12 - 15 minutes, checking on its progress approximately halfway through. The squash will be ready when a fork easily scrapes out the strands.
