This hearty vegetable is home to a boatload of vitamin A along with good-for-you phytochemicals and fiber, all without making much of a dent in your daily caloric intake. Here you'll find a quick and easy technique for how to cook spaghetti squash in the microwave. Feel free to cook just one half at a time, wrapping and storing the second half for another day.
Use a large sharp knife and cut the squash in half through the stem.
Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Roast the seeds, if desired, or discard.
Set the squash flesh-side-down in a baking dish and add about 1/2 inch of water to the pan.
Microwave uncovered on high for 10 to 20 minutes until the color deepens and you can easily slide a little knife into the flesh. The time can vary considerably.
Let cool enough to handle and run the tines of a fork through the squash to unearth the spaghetti-like threads.
