The Spaghetti Squash (Cucurbita pep var. fastigata) is also referred to as vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow and squaghetti. It is a pale yellow (or off white) oblong sized squash.
Cutting a spaghetti squash is similar to cutting an uncooked pumpkin. If you cut a raw spaghetti squash in half, you will see that it looks very similar to a pumpkin because in the centre is a core of large seeds (similar in size to pumpkin seeds) and the spaghetti squash flesh is hard – just like a pumpkin.
Place the spaghetti squash (seeds intact) face down on a baking tray covered in baking paper and place in a pre-heated moderate oven (175 degrees celsius) for about 40 minutes (or until the skin of the spaghetti squash is a little soft when prodded with the back of a spoon).
