Cook Time: 35–40 minutes


1 medium spaghetti squash

1) Preheat the oven to 400 °F.

2) Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. 

What is the easiest way to cut squash? The first step is to put a towel down on your cutting board and then place your spaghetti squash on the towel to minimize rolling. Start by making several large slits through the skin with the tip of a sharp knife.

3) Season the spaghetti squash with salt and roast on a foil-lined half sheet pan for 30 minutes, until tender. Let cool. With a fork, scrape the squash to remove long strands and place on a towel.

To make spaghetti like strands, gently scrape the tines of a kitchen fork around the edge of the spaghetti squash to shred the pulp into strands.

5) In a medium bowl, combine the squash, chopped sage, nutmeg, scallion, garlic, salt, pepper, blue cheese, and all but 1 teaspoon of the orange zest. Stir in the egg and flour, and mix well until combined.

6) Add the canola oil to a large shallow pan two-thirds up the sides of the pan. Place the pan over medium-high heat. The oil should be heated to 360 °F for frying.

7) Drop spoonfuls of the squash mixture into the oil. Cook until the fritters are golden brown, about 4 minutes. After the fritters have cooked for 2 to 3 minutes, add some fresh sage leaves, but be careful because they will pop. Fry the sage leaves for a couple of minutes and remove with the fritters. 

8) Drain the fried fritters and sage leaves on paper towels and season with salt.

Can you overcook spaghetti squash?

As with all vegetables, squash and pumpkins should not be overcooked or submerged in boiling water since this will result in the loss of both essential nutrients and flavor.

The key concern with spaghetti squash is that it's easy to overcook. Cooking the squash al dente is practically an art. If I'm making your favorite casserole, don't worry about overcooking the spaghetti squash, because it really doesn't matter. If you are going for al dente noodle-like strands, I pay close attention to cooking times.

Most people bake, broil, pressure cook, or steam them before using in a recipe, but squash can be peeled and cut up for cooking in a small amount of water or broth.

How do you know if Spaghetti squash is ripe?

When the squash has turned a golden yellow or a dark yellowish color, it is usually ready to be picked. The skin of the squash will be very thick and tough. If you use your fingernail to poke the squash, you will know it's ripe if your nail doesn't pierce the squash.

Spaghetti squash or vegetable spaghetti can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, including ivory, yellow and orange, with orange having the highest amount of carotene. Its center holds many large seeds and when raw, the flesh is solid and similar to other raw squash. When cooked, the meat of the fruit falls away from the flesh in ribbons or strands that look like noodles.


How long does spaghetti squash last? Eat cooked spaghetti squash within 3 to 5 days of putting it in the refrigerator.

Store whole raw spaghetti squash at room temperature up to 3 weeks. Spaghetti squash is available year-round with peak season in fall.

Ideal storage conditions for these vegetables is in a cool, dry place, just about 50°F., 50–70 percent humidity, with moderate air circulation. A basement or an attic with a fan might be just the perfect solution. They should be set securely on shelves or table, not touching each other.

Outside storage might run the risk of freezing your vegetables, and inside the home where temperatures run above 55°F will cause the vegetable spaghetti to get stringy. 

Even under the most excellent conditions pumpkins and winter squash will not stay perfect for 10 years. Eventually the starch content will turn to sugar and the water content will increase. That's why some people freeze, dry, can, or pickle some pumpkin or squash to use during the late winter months. 

You can also cook spaghetti squash recipes and then store it in the freezer for weeks.
