Pierce shell in several places to allow steam to escape. Place whole squash in a rimmed baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes; turn squash over and continue baking until shell gives to pressure. Scoop out “noodles”.
The noodles from these squashes are very flavorful and excellent served with pasta sauces.
Spaghetti squash: Allow 1/3 to 1/2 pound per person.
