This is the Easiest Way to Cook Spaghetti Squash at Home

All you need is a slow cooker.


If you're looking to add more veggies to your diet, spaghetti squash can be a great substitute for pasta.While turning this hard squash into spaghetti-like strands seems intimidating, it's actually way easier to cook than you might think, thanks to this cooking trick from Hungry Girl. Instead of struggling with cutting a tough, uncooked squash in half to get it ready for roasting, just place the entire vegetable in a slow cooker, and in only five steps you'll have the perfect dish for busy nights:

1. Place your spaghetti squash in the slow cooker and add a 1/2 cup water.

2. Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours, or until soft.

3. Take out your cooked spaghetti squash and easily slice it in half.

4. Scrape out the seeds and discard them (or roast them separately as a snack!).

5. Use a fork to scrape the flesh into strands. To remove moisture, place them in a strainer.

Once your spaghetti squash is prepared, add your favorite pasta toppings and get ready to hear some rave reviews from your family.
