  1. With a very sharp knife, lop off the top or bottom of the squash so that it will stand flat and secure on your cutting board. Slice the squash in half lengthwise.

  2. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds.

  3. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

  4. Brush the inside of each half with about 1 teaspoon olive oil each and sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Place cut sides down on a rimmed baking sheet and put sheet into the oven.

  6. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until you can easily pierce the squash with a fork.

  7. Let cool for about 15 minutes, or until squash is cool enough to handle. With a fork, scrape out the spaghetti-like strands and prepare as desired.
