My Mum has spaghetti squash in the garden...
I like it best cut into halves, get out the scoops and with some oil in the oven... don`t know the exakt time...
serve it with a tomatoe soup you like best...
I prefer one made with lots of curry.. I love curry!!

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I love it, make it just like they say above, mix it 1/2 and 1/2 with whole wheat pasta and serve with a marinara with fresh herbs. It is delish, and very healthy.

When it's done, cut it open (it'll be easier to cut since it's cooked...but watch for steam), scoop out the seeds, and then use a fork to scrape the squash flesh into spaghetti-like strands.

I'm a simple person and like to drizzle the strands with olive oil. Then I salt, pepper and parsley to taste and mix in some parmesean. No need for measurements. An easy and different side dish.
I just learnt this tip this past fall from my grandma, when I was saying that you can't get tinned pumpkin in Ireland. It's sooo much eaiser than baking the whole squash/pumpkin in the oven.
