This is the second spaghetti squash recipe I wrote. If you saw the first one, you knew that I was addicted to or crave for spaghetti squash lately. So, I tried to dress up the squash with different flavors.

Vegan Italian Seasoned Spaghetti Squash Recipe
Look at how simple the dressing is. Just toss to coat and enjoy.
3.5-4 LBs Spaghetti Squash
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Everything tastes better with butter. You can either replace it with butter or half butter and half extra virgin olive oil)
3 Cloves Minced Garlic
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 pinch Crushed Red Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
- Preheat oven at 375F
- Use a fork to poke several times on the spaghetti squash to let the steam out (it could be difficult to poke the squash. As long as the tips of a fork slightly get under the skin is good enough)
- Transfer to a casserole dish or roasting pan (for your safety, stay away from regular baking sheet. After sitting in the oven for a while, the squash still has the tendency to roll around. To avoid it to roll it off and burn yourself, please use a roasting pan)
- Bake it in the oven for an hour until a pairing knife can cut into the squash without any resistance
- If not, bake it again for another 10 minutes again until the pairing knife can go through the squash easily. Repeat this step until the squash is cooked through
- Let it sit in room temperature for 10 minutes and cut it into halves and spoon out and discard the seeds (it is still hot to touch. I use glove to help in the process and worked out great.)
- Then, use a fork to rake the flesh from the skin and transfer to a bowl
- While waiting for the spaghetti squash cooling in room temperature, in a Dutch oven, combine all the ingredients of the dressing at medium high heat
- Stir in the flesh of spaghetti squash and adjust seasonings and serve immediately
