When you cut into it, go in from the stem to keep your options open

Michelle, I remember last summer there were a few spaghetti squash TOO hard to cut in half. So I stabbed it with a knife a few times and baked it that way. It was much easier to cut open that way. So I cleaned it out and then forked out the spaghetti squash, it was fine.
Also, when spaghetti squash are not ripe, they are white, so it may have been harvested early. I doubt that will create a problem. Good eats! ~Bliss

Definitely a spaghetti squash--not quite ripe like blissful said, but very delicious! Thanks! It went great with my shepherd's pie.

Wow. Cool. You didn't know what it was, asked, and cooked it up.
That's pretty neat, I think.

although most spaghetti squashes are yellow it is definetly a spaghetti squash and very delicious. I usually take a steak knife and poke a few slice cuts around it and place the squash in a large pot of water and boil until tender (about 30 to 45 minutes). I then turn the burner off and let the squash cool just enough to handle. I then cut in half and scrape all spaghetti looking squash out of squash shell into a skillet with a desired amount of butter and fry untill slightly golden brown. If you wish you can add fried hamburger or any other fried meat and season with salt, pepper or what ever as desired.

What texture does that have? I could see it as a side dish to a nice piece of salmon. Is it like cole slaw?
