How NOT To Cook Spaghetti Squash

Apparently I didn’t put enough steam holes in this spaghetti squash. I heard a bang from another room and when I investigated (thinking home invasion…should I call 911) I found the microwave door blown open and an exploded squash inside. The squash blew right off the plate it was on. Fortunately most of the squash was still inside the rind and the microwave still worked. Clean up just took a few minutes and the squash was delicious at dinner served with a bison red sauce.

A learning experience. Microwaving (for me) is the easiest/quickest way to cook hard skinned squash, but if you are cooking them whole, make sure to make adequate holes for the steam to escape.
