How to Make Spaghetti Squash Primavera

  1. Take the sliced spaghetti squash and remove the seeds inside it with the help of a spoon.

  3. Take a deep pan.
  4. Heat up some olive oil into the pan.

Trivia

  • Unlike its name, Spaghetti Squash is a vegetable that can be cooked or baked like real pasta.
  • If you have a big spaghetti squash, its spaghetti strands will be much thicker.

‘Primavera’ literally means spring. This is the reason that spring all vegetables are used in this dish.
