mmmm. My mom used to make spaghetti squash in place of spaghetti noodles. I'm going to have to buy one and try it with the olive oil/garlic and spaghetti sauce. I think even my picky dh would eat that with enough garlic!

Ooo. I want to try your recipe Gary, but I'll have to leave out the black beans. Wonder what I could put in instead, that isn't a bean...

Hmm...

Looks great!

I just recently tried spaghetti squash and was thrilled with the results. It's not only easy to prepare and delicious, but the leftovers lasted like four days in my fridge! I think next time I will saute the leftovers with garlic and butter and serve it with salmon.

WW has a FABULOUS Spaghetti Squash Marinara Recipe. Essentially you cut a spaghetti squash in half, take out seeds and bake at 350 for 40 minutes. While that's cooking make a healthy 'sauce' to your liking. After squash is done baking, let cool for about 10 minutes then just start scraping out the insides. I've been afraid of this forever but decided to give it a whirl.....OMG, it is fabulous. Don't let the look of it deceive you. The squash is so crunchy.

Actually I just made it for lunch today and even put some ground turkey and an entire onion in the sauce. You really can't go wrong!

Don't be afraid and ENJOY!!!

P.S. I HATE to cook....this is soooooo easy!!

Default squash seeds

Perhaps this deserves it's own thread, but roast the seeds out of squash's and it is PHENOMENAL, better than pumpkin seeds. i have done this for acorn squash, organic spaghetti squash and regular spaghetti squash and it's been GREAT each time.

i wash them, springle them with sea salt and garlic powder, put on a pam'd cookie sheet and bake at 350 until done as you like, i like them very brown.

My grandpa has made spaghetti squash before but when he cooked the insides he mixed everything together with spaghetti noodles and put it back in the squash shell and baked it or something... I didn't eat it personally but there are probably a lot of ways to make it delicious.
