Equipment

Ingredients
 

  • 1 spaghetti squash about 2 pounds
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Cut a little of both ends. Place the spaghetti squash on a kitchen towel and cut lengthwise into halves. Scoop the seeds and membranes out with a spoon and discard.
  • Brush the cut halves with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  • Preheat Air fryer to 350F. Place the spaghetti squash halves in the Air fryer basket.
  • Air fryer for 25 to 30 minutes until browned on top and fork tender.
  • Remove the squash from the Air fryer and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Fluff with a fork to seperate the strands. Serve with your choice of sauce and cheese.

Notes

  • Cook on low - Cooking at higher heat like 400F would leave the top burnt and flesh undercooked. To avoid this, I cook the squash at 350F until it's tender.
  • Store- leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.
  • Reheat - in the microwave or air fry at 350F for a few minutes until warm.
  • Seasoning options -
    • To serve spaghetti squash on its own, season with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.
    • For a sweet version, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with brown sugar or drizzle of maple syrup.
