Hi, I'm Lori Schneider with Figs Catering in Austin, Texas. On behalf of Expert Village, today we are going to show you how to make a baked spaghetti squash casserole with sun dried tomatoes. To get started we are going to start off with our spaghetti squash and you can see here that I've got a good sized spaghetti sauce and it is the Fall season right now so this is a very fresh vegetable, it is in season and it is going to have a lot of great flavors. The first thing that we are going to do is lie it on the cutting board and we want to be very careful with handling spaghetti squash because it does roll around and it is very hard. When you are working with the sharp objects rolling around, you have to be very careful. I am going to place my knife in the middle of the squash and just pressing down and I am going to pull the knife away from me. You are going to have to use a little bit of muscle here. Okay now I am going to pull my knife back up and pull it out. I am going to do the same thing on the other side here. I am going to push it down and pull it on down. Perfect! That is what the inside of your spaghetti squash will look like and spaghetti squash is really really great. It is kind of hard to tell now but once we cook the spaghetti squash, it will be real easy to pull apart with the fork and it is going to come off in strands that really mimic spaghetti. That is why a lot of times people use it if you are trying to watch your weight, they use spaghetti squash instead of real pasta because it absorbs the flavor of the sauces and it is much healthier for you than pasta.
