Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash sized for a 6 quart crock pot slow cooker
  • 1-2 cups water

Instructions

  • Wash spaghetti squash well then pierce 3 or 4 times with a knife.
  • Place squash in crock pot and add water.
  • Set crock pot to either low or high setting.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.
  • Remove spaghetti squash from crock pot and allow to cool 20-30 minutes.
  • Cut squash in half lengthwise. Pull a fork along the flesh to separate the strands.

Notes

To add an extra hour of cooking time to the low setting, simply put the crock pot insert and squash in the refrigerator overnight. The chilled pot and squash adds about an hour to the total cooking time.
