Rosey I cut the squash is half long ways and dig out the strings and seeds similar to a cantaloupe. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 30 to 40 minutes depending on the size. Take a fork and scrape opposite the grain. Looks like spagetti. I like mine a little on the crunchy side rather than really soft. It's really good and filling. The best part is it's a vegetable!!!
