1. Classic Air Fryer Spaghetti Squash

This recipe is the classic way to cook spaghetti squash, ideal if you're looking for a quick and easy meal with essentially no prep time. All you need is a spaghetti squash, salt and pepper, and parmesan cheese. If you're vegan, leave out the cheese and add in some spices like garlic powder and paprika for flavor. To make this, preheat your air fryer, and then cut your squash in half with a sharp knife. Place the squash halves in the air fryer cut side down, then cook until fork tender.
