How to Freeze Spaghetti Squash

Have lots of spaghetti squash on your hands? Freeze some of it to use later.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 1 hour or less

Here's How:

  1. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Place the squash on a baking sheet (cut side up), and bake for 30-40 minutes (or until tender) at 375 degrees.
  3. Allow the squash to cool. Then, run a fork lengthwise through the flesh to separate it into strands.
  4. Scoop all the squash strands into a freezer-safe bag or container, and freeze.

Tips:

  1. Save your squash seeds and roast them just as you would pumpkin seeds.
  2. Divide your spaghetti squash up into servings before you freeze it to make it easier to use.

What You Need:

  • Spaghetti squash
  • A baking sheet
  • A knife
  • Freezer bags or containers
