McKenzie Seed – Squash Vegetable Spaghetti Pasta


Vegetable Spaghetti Pasta Squash are large and creamy yellow when mature. This winter squash grows cylindrical shaped fruit 25-30 cm (10-12″) long and 18 cm (7″) in diameter on trailing vines. Cut open the squash, remove the seeds, then scrape out the inside to discover the pasta-like strands.



Plant Type: Vegetable

Flavor: Chewy with a mild flavor

Preparation Ideas: Preheat over to 400 F. Carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and stringy bits of flesh. You do not want to remove any of the flesh. Place squash halves upside down in a backing dish. Add a little water to just cover the bottom of the backing dish. Roast the squash for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the squash. Remove from oven and turn the halves to flesh side up. The squash is ready when it is easy to shred the flesh into spaghetti like strands with the tines of a fork. You can do a taste test and if the strands are more crunchy then you prefer, place back in the oven for a while longer. If you prefer long spaghetti-like strands, rake your fork in the same direction as the strands. If desired, toss strands wtih butter or olive oil and salt and pepper.
