Spaghetti squash happens to be one of my favorite squashes. I love that I can use it for a grain free/gluten free noodle alternative. With it being slightly sweet, it is even a favorite among the kids here.
However, hacking into a spaghetti squash is not my idea of fun. I’m thankful I haven’t cut any fingers off, for.sure.
But, let me tell you my friends, there is an EASY way to cook that spaghetti squash without losing fingers or using a microwave.
You can put that squash right in your crock pot. Yes, I know!
I have been using spaghetti squash for years now and only recently realized I can use my (affiliate link) crock pot. Now, I’m never going back.
The beauty of doing this is that you don’t have to cut it first.
All you need to do is stab a few holes into the squash, put a bit of water in the bottom of your crock pot, turn it on high for a few hours and it will be all ready for dinner.
Your spaghetti squash will now be super easy to cut open. Scoop out the seed and you are set.
And in honor of this fabulously easy way to cook a spaghetti squash, I found some great recipes for you to try it out with.
All of these recipes are THM and gluten free too.
