My favorite way to cook spaghetti squash:
Pre-heat the oven to 460F. Using a fork or sharp knife, poke holes in the spaghetti squash and microwave for 5 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, and brush each side 1 tbsp of avocado oil and season with 1/4 tsp of salt. Place face down on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes until tender.  Remove from the oven, let cool to handle, and scrape out the flesh with a fork.
