I cut in half, long-ways. Scoop out the innards (seeds). Face down, in about 1 inch of water in a big glass pan. Cover tightly with saran wrap, nuke for 14 minutes (my microwave is pretty wimpy, adjust accordingly). Fork out in strands. Top with pasta sauce. Mmmm.

I top mine with black beans, lime juice, and cumin. But I'll eat just about anything if it's got black beans, lime juice, and cumin!

Here's your post that I've been meaning to modify and try, from your last spaghetti squash experiment:

I nuke it for about 8-9 minutes and then let it cool, but that makes it soft enough to easily cut in half and scoop out all the seeds. Then I bake it for about 45 minutes. I like the texture and flavor a lot more when it's baked - it starts to caramelize a bit and get the natural sweetness. I top with spaghetti sauce with meat. Yum, yum, yum! (ok, now I'm going to have to stop at the market on the way home and see if they have one! lol!

I cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, brush with olive oil, and put cut sides down on a cookie sheet and bake.

They carmelize amazingly.

During that, I put 1 tbs of olive oil in a pan and crisp up tons of garlic and at the end, throw in a pinch of chili flakes and 1/2 to 1 tbs of parm cheese.

Then I fork out the squash and mix all together. AMAZING. But you have to love garlic

I found the best way to make moist, delicious spaghetti squash is to buy one that will fit in your crock pot, poke holes in it with a fork and stick it in there in the morning on "low" with a cup of water and voila....it will come out moist and not overcooked. It will also cut in half really easily, then just take the squash out with a fork. Then I saute some onion, garlic, and spinach in a little olive oil, toss the squash in and top with tomato sauce. It's really yummy!

This is pretty much what I do, except I use feta cheese and just sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. DELICIOUS!!

Glory, your idea is great but I really recommend not using plastic wrap in the microwave. It's very bad, as far as I know. I wish you all the best.
