How to roast a spaghetti squash:

Heat the oven to 375°F and arrange a rack in the middle. On a flat and steady surface, cut the squash in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Brush the flesh with 2 tablespoons of the oil and season generously with sea salt and pepper. Place the squash halves cut-side up on a baking sheet and roast until you can puncture it with a fork, about 50 minutes. Remove the squash from the oven and let it sit at room temperature until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes. Scrape the flesh with a fork to make long strands; set aside.
