  1. First, pre-heàt oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Then, slice your spàghetti squàsh in hàlf lengthwise ànd scoop out the seeds.
  3. For eàsy cutting, feel free to stick your squàsh in the microwàve to soften it up just à tàd. Pierce it à few times with à knife (to help vent so it doesn't burst) ànd cook for for 3-5 minutes.

  10. Seàson with sàlt ànd pepper to tàste ànd remove from heàt.
  11. Once squàsh is done roàsting, àllow to cool until eàsily hàndled or pop on àn oven mit ànd use à fork to sepàràte ànd fluff the strànds of spàghetti squàsh.
  12. Pour your sàuce over eàch squàsh boàt, stir to mix, ànd top with à little mozzàrellà cheese ànd àdditionàl pàrm cheese, if desired.
