Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet lightly with cooking spray.

  • Heat spaghetti squash in the microwave for 1 minute. Cut in half and scoop out seeds. Place cut-side down on the baking sheet.

  • Bake squash in the preheated oven until softened, about 30 minutes. Flip over with tongs. Place 1 tablespoon butter into each cavity; sprinkle brown sugar inside. Dust squash with nutmeg and cinnamon and fill with sliced apples.

  • Continue baking squash until apple slices are tender, 30 to 40 minutes more.

  • Divide apple slices among serving plates. Scrape squash out of the skin with a fork and drop over apple slices.

Cook's Note:

To prevent the apples from browning, slice them about 25 minutes after putting the squash in the oven.
