I cooked my first spaghetti squash last night. I pierced it several times, then stuck it whole in the microwave for about 10 minutes. No cutting it in half, no water, just the squash on a plate in the oven. It came out great, and was easy to cut in half when it was done and soft.
First time I ever tried using one instead of pasta. I made a tomato sauce with some chopped up leftover turkey (cause I'm cheap that way), and ate it with a bit of grated cheese. I was surprised how much I liked it. No, it didn't taste like pasta to me. But it went well with the sauce, which stayed on it like a topping much better than I would have guess.
Will definately be doing this again. Soon and often. I have a new favorite diet food!
