This is low carb substitution for spaghetti noodles.
Get the spaghetti squash. It is a yellow round/oblong squash labeled spaghetti squash.
Take a knife an pierce it a couple of times, then put it in the microwave whole for just a minute or two. This softens it up a tiny bit and makes it easier to cut. Slice the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out all the seeds. Then place the two halves face down in a microwave safe dish with water in the bottom, cover with microwave safe cover (or saran wrap) and microwave on high for 5 to 7 minutes depending on the size of the squash. Start with 5 and then test it. When it is done, take a fork and scrape out the squash into a bowl. It comes out like stringly spaghetti noodles.
Sautee some mushrooms with a little bit of sherry, wine, or cooking wine (1 Tbs) then add a can of fire-roasted tomatoes and a little garlic and pour it over the squash. Yummy. You can also eat it without tomato like sauce and just put some lemon and a little goat cheese.
