Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is a great gluten free alternative to noodles, but many people are afraid they won’t know how to prepare them.   Using a slow cooker makes it super easy.  You can also cook acorn squash and butternut squash this way.



1 large spaghetti squash

3⁄4 cup water


Place whole squash and water in a greased or lined slow cooker . Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours until squash is fork tender or a knife can be inserted in the center easily. Remove the squash carefully from the slow cooker and allow to cool for several minutes. With a sharp knife, cut off the top and bottom, then cut in half lengthwise. Scoop seeds out of the center and use a fork to remove threads.

    That sounds really good as I like the idea of noodles but not overly keen on them, although I had to go to Google as I had never heard of it before lol. Thanks for sharing 😀😀

    I love this, we always get tons of squash from our friends in the country and this is delicious to make. Great idea with the slow cooker, we need to try it this way. Usually we only make beans and soups in our slow cookers…thanks for sharing.
