I just bought some zucchini that I plan to make a zucchini lasagna. You substitute the pasta with long zucchini slices. I saw a recipe that I want to try and now I have to try to remember where to find it. I think its a SP recipe.

I love zucchini! On the grill, in soups and casseroles, in salad, steamed and raw. Zucchini bread is good too.

ZOEWEI, thanks for the recipe suggestion. I can find zucchini at a reasonable price. I will try the lasagna recipe.

Hmmm, I never imagined where you live, I guess it is like any where you have a yard or not. I think you made the right choice with the spaghetti squash and I have many recipes. Do you have zucchini there? It grows like crazy here and Sparks has an excellent zucchini Lazangia recipe . Best of eating , zoe

ZOEWEI, I live in Puerto Rico and most of the US mainland vegetables are imported thus the high cost.

RUTHEY01 look up a recipe for these squashes and try them. You might like them.

I've never had either spaghetti or butternut squash. I wouldn't know how to cook them!

I have used it for many years like this. I am lucky to have a garden which certainly lowers the cost. Even at that $ 2.97 sounds awful high to me

I love spaghetti squash and I make it with home tomato sauce also. I don't make it has often as I would like because where I live its priced right now at $2.97/lb. A average squash size is about 2 lbs. That is expensive spaghetti.

It's really good. I just spice up the sauce a little more.

Yeah, I've been using spaghetti squash now and again since I first tried it a couple of years ago. For one thing, I find it a little easier to prepare than other squash, not sure why, and the grandkids just think it's plain fun to eat : )

Winter squash was on sale this week so I got a spaghetti squash, and had it last night instead of noodles w/ my homemade spaghetti sauce. Really good, and looked exactly like angel hair pasta, except yellower. Definitely will be using it again!
