Step 1

From Empowered Sustenance: Smallish spaghetti squashes are easier to cut for this recipe. Use due caution when cutting the squash!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Slice the ends off the squash and discard. Then, cut about 1½ inch wide rounds of the squash (I make 4 cuts in a small squash) and set on a baking dish lined with unbleached parchment paper, for easy cleanup. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds.
Bake until the strands are tender but not mushy, about 20 - 25 minutes. Use a fork to pull the strands into the center of each round. This creates long strands of spaghetti.

Another method:
Cut in half, scoop out the seeds, bake less side down for 45 minutes in a 400° oven until a brown spot forms on the outer skin.
