A couple years ago, I had never even heard about a spaghetti squash, but now it’s one of my favorite foods! During those years, I tried many ways to cook the squash including in the microwave and in the oven. Both seemed far too difficult. I’m all about ease, so I figured out how to cook a spaghetti squash right in my slow cooker!
Simply make a couple stabs in the squash with either a knife or a fork and gently place in your crockpot. Add in about an inch of water and cook on low for about 4-6 hours depending on the size of your spaghetti squash. Yes, it’s that simple! To check if it’s done, simply press on it and if it’s really soft, it’s done! Pull out your squash carefully and allow it to cool a few minutes. It may be really hot, so please be careful!
Cut the squash open from top to bottom and scoop out the seeds. The next part is pretty fun! Just take a fork and start scraping at the inside of the squash. It will start looking like strands of spaghetti, like this!
Next place on a plate, add your favorite spaghetti sauce on top, along with extra italian seasonings, parmesan, and of course meatballs, and you have a wonderful carb free dinner!
MMMmm…. what a wonderful dinner this was last night!
