Heard about the health benefits of spaghetti squash and want to cook some up? Want to try making “zoodles” (squash noodles)? “Biggest Loser” host Bob Harper has a super-easy way to cook your squash!

HOW TO COOK SPAGHETTI SQUASH IN A SLOW COOKER
Just take a whole spaghetti squash, poke holes in the outside with a fork, and then put it in your slow cooker with a cup of stock or water. Cook on low for six hours, and you’re done!

Rach tried the technique, and when she cut into the cooked squash, she said, “It cuts like butter!”

HOW TO COOK SPAGHETTI SQUASH IN THE MICROWAVE
Alternatively, another crazy-easy way to cook your squash it to microwave it. Slice the squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Place half the squash cut-side-down in a glass container and add about an inch of water. Microwave on high for 5-10 minutes until soft.

It doesn’t get easier than that folks! Go enjoy some zoodles.
