Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place squash cut side down on a large roasting pan. Add one inch of water. Bake until fork tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine honey, vinegar, crushed red pepper, orange zest, orange juice, and salt. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
  4. Scoop squash from shell into spaghetti-like strands with a fork. Combine with sauce and chopped parsley. Serve at room temperature scattered with soaked dried cranberries if using.

Chef Tips

If you want to garnish with cranberries for a Holiday meal, before you prepare and cook the squash, soak the cranberries: Bring 1 cup of water to a low boil (or use apple juice instead of water if you want to sweeten the cranberries). Add 1/4 cup dried unsweetened cranberries. Bring back to a boil. Cover and turn off the heat. Leave cranberries to infuse and plump while you cook the squash. Drain and add to the squash just before serving.
