Recipe Directions

Cut the spaghetti squash in half width-wise, and remove seeds. Using a fork, scoop the inside of the squash, forming thin strands (if they stick together, pull the strands apart with your hands after scooping them out).
In a blender or food processor, puree the basil, garlic, olive oil, walnuts, and cayenne (add a few kale leaves for an extra boost of greens).
Pour on top of the spaghetti squash, mix it up, sprinkle on some lemon juice and serve!
I’ll put up a photo next time I make it.

Tweedle's Review

Squash Noodles with Pesto Sauce
3 out of 5

I had trouble with the squash. I got it cut open just fine, but it didn't really come out as noodles...and I did scrape it with a fork the way I've been told is best.
I think I'll stick with zucchini noodles...they have a more pleasant flavor anyway.
The pesto though, was delicious.

I tried to cut open a spaghetti squash, but could cut through it at all. Any advice?
