How to Make Fake Spaghetti

How to Make Fake Spaghetti thumbnail
Spaghetti squash can be substituted for real spaghetti.

Surprise your guests with an alternative to a traditional wheat based pasta. Spaghetti squash, when cooked, will peel apart like strands of spaghetti. While it looks like spaghetti, it doesn't taste like spaghetti. This type of fake spaghetti is a good substitute for guests that suffer from a gluten intolerance, or guests that may be on a low carb diet.

Instructions

    • 1

      Place your spaghetti squash on a cutting board and slice it down the middle so that you have two long halves.

    • 2

      Scoop out the squash seeds and rinse the spaghetti squash halves off with cold water.

    • 3

      Place the spaghetti squash halves in a baking dish with the rinds facing down. Baste each half with a tablespoon of melted butter.

    • 4

      Cook the spaghetti squash in an oven that was preheated to 350 F for 45 minutes. Add five to 10 minutes if the spaghetti squash is a large one.

    • 5

      Remove the spaghetti squash from the oven and comb the flesh with a fork. This will pull the strands of spaghetti squash up.

    • 6

      Place the spaghetti squash strands in a bowl and serve with meatballs and pasta sauce.
