About spaghetti squash
Spaghetti squash is a member of the family that includes pumpkins and melons. Squashes fall into two seasonal classifications, winter or summer, and spaghetti squash is no exception. This squash is typically grown and harvested in early fall through winter, which places it in the winter classification even though it's available throughout the year.
Originating in North and Central America, spaghetti squash bears a watermelon shape and weighs anywhere from 3 to 5 pounds. It may go by other names, such as vegetable spaghetti, vegetable marrow, or noodle squash. Larger spaghetti squashes tend to be more flavorful, and a deep yellow color indicates ripeness. When uncooked, spaghetti squash is almost completely solid, except for a seeded center. However, its flesh separates with a fork to form long strands that resemble pasta when it's cooked.
Thin spaghetti squash strands, referred to as noodles, are visually similar to angel hair pasta and considered a low-cost, healthier alternative. Spaghetti squash routinely replaces pasta when topped with sauces, served as pad thai, or baked into lasagna. Although it doesn't taste like pasta, spaghetti squash has a delicate al dente texture, especially when the vegetable is at its peak of ripeness.
Spaghetti squash is also a low-calorie alternative, coming in at only 30 calories per cup compared to pasta's 200 calories. It's quite a versatile vegetable and a good source of vitamins B and C and potassium.
Spaghetti squash keeps well when stored at temperatures 60 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. It also freezes well and can be stored whole, cut up, or cooked.
Choose from among the following types of spaghetti squash:
- Organic spaghetti squash.
