Wash the outside of your spaghetti squash and carefully prick it with a sharp knife or fork several times.
3 - 4 lb spaghetti squash
Place whole spaghetti squash into slow cooker
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Spaghetti squash is ready when you can easily dent it by pressing it with your finger or the back of a spoon. (be very careful if using a finger. It will be VERY hot!)
Use tongs to remove squash from slow cooker
Allow squash to cool off a bit for easier handling
While your squash is cooling, add sauce to your slow cooker. If you are planning to use ground meat, that should be added to your slow cooker along with the sauce
2 - 3 cups sauce of choice, 2 cups browned ground beef or turkey
When squash has cooled enough to touch, carefully cut it in half. Use a spoon to scoop out seeds and pulp from the middle of your squash and discard.
Next, use a fork to loosen the strands into "spaghetti-like" pieces. These strands can be added back into your slow cooker and mixed with your sauce. Alternatively, you can plate the squash strands and top with your heated sauce.
top with grated parmesan and oregano when serving
