I finally tried it about a week ago and liked it! It was a little watery so next time I'll pat it down with a paper towel first. I'm going to make chicken parm and have it on spaghetti squash one of these days. Yum!
In addition to baking and steaming on the stove, spaghetti squash can also be steamed in the microwave. Fill a microwavable dish with about an inch of water. Cut the squash in half and place cut side down in the dish. Wrap with plastic wrap and then microwave on high until inside is tender (if I remember correctly, about 10-15 minutes). The rest is the same as below - scrape out the insides with a fork, and top as you like.
Just thought I'd chime in with my praise of spaghetti squash! YUM! I just cut it in half lengthwise, spray some I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray, sprinkle with salt, pepper and any other spices I might want that day, put cut side down and bake for like 45-60 minutes on 350 F. Then do the fork thing to get the squash out.
DH and I made it a week or two ago. We cut the squash into four sections and steamed it on the stove (I had previously only had it baked like Chef Sophie described below), then we scraped the insides off the peel and spread them on a plate. We topped this with homemade sauce made with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers, carrots, zucchini and yellow squash - most of it from our own garden! We used salt and cayenne pepper to season (and DH probably added some basil). It was delicious!!!

I love spaghetti squash...you can add anything to it..I usually add a low cal/low sodium pasta sauce to it and sprinkle with a little Parmesan.

Ok, so I was at a friends house and was served this for lunch. I've never even heard of it before, but I fell in love! Does anyone have any interesting ideas of how to cook and or serve this? I had it with spray butter and garlic... it was YUMMY!
