Spaghetti Squash on the grill

Right now we have fabulous small dark yellow spaghetti squash in the store.   Though you can bake, steam or roast these squashes, I love to throw them on the bbq.

Knock off the hard stem of the squash.  Sit the squash on the now stable stemless end and CAREFULLY cut the squash in half length wise.  If you don’t have the right knife or strength to cut through the squash, chuck it in the microwave on high for 2-3 minutes to soften it up a bit.

After you have cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds and in the hollow place a knob of butter, salt and pepper to taste, 2 cloves of garlic, crushed and about a table spoon of water.

Place your squash halves on your bbq (shell side down), have the flame set to medium.

After about 20 minutes poke around in the squash with a fork.  If the flesh seems soft enough, it’s done!!

Pick up your squash halves with oven mitts or tongs.  It will be HOT.  Carefully scoop out the flesh from the 2 pieces into a bowl.  Mix up the flesh with the garlic and pepper that was in the cavity. You can enjoy the squash just like that, or at this point you can add your favourite meat sauce and mix it up like pasta spaghetti.
