I’m cooking a Spaghetti Squash, with a hammer & screwdriver of course…..

This is the best trick for making a squash cook fast. It works with most, the only one I haven’t tried it on is the Butternut but I will.
I don’t use my microwave for much but it really does the trick here. Spaghetti Squash takes at least 40 minutes to cook in the oven but this is the super busy version, where you don’t have all day to be in the kitchen.
Nick, this one’s for you……

Use a CLEAN screw driver and bang a few holes into it. 8 should do the trick, put them on all sides and then put it in the microwave on a plate for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size and it is cooked, done, finished, ready to eat.
Remove it with a towel it’s gonna be hot & you can cut into it like butter, Not like when its uncooked and you need a machete to get through it. You can slice right through the hard shell because its not hard anymore.
Scoop the seeds out and season it.

enjoy -T
