If you’ve never had spaghetti squash, you might wonder what it tastes like. Spaghetti squash is a bit of a chameleon when it comes to flavour. 

When cooked, it takes on a mild, slightly sweet flavour similar to other winter squash varieties. However, it also has a slight crunch that makes it unique. 

When combined with other ingredients in a dish, like our spaghetti squash pie, the flavour of the squash takes a backseat to the other flavours in the dish.

Can you eat the squash raw?

You can eat raw spaghetti squash, but it’s not as tasty as when cooked. Cooking the squash helps to bring out its natural sweetness.
