I have never had spaghetti squash, but I use a spiral slicer for zucchini, yellow squash, etc.

I add pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh/dried basil, shallots, mushrooms dried and fresh, roasted red peppers, baby spinach, toss and warm slightly for a faux-pasta like dish.

All the suggestions given here are great!

I love to have it with butter and some spices. Or with sauce.

I always just bake it with about an inch of water in the pan for 45-60 minutes at 350. The sauce that you put on it is really dependent on what you like. Everyday Paleo: Italian cuisine has some great recipies www.amazon.com/Everyday-Paleo-Around

Red bell pepper sauce
2 red bell peppers
3 tbsp EVOO
1 garlic clove
1tbsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 450.
Line a baking sheet with foil, and place the whole red peppers on the foil. Roast them for 15-20 minutes or until skins start to blacken and bubble .
Remove the peppers from the oven and let them cool so that you can handle them
Remove the skins and seeds from the peppers.
Place the roasted red peppers flesh into a food processor along with the extra virgin olive oil, garlic and sea salt. Process until completely smooth.

Pesto sauce is also good
1/2 c. of toasted pine nuts
1 garlice clove
1c. EVOO
2c. basil
1tsp sea salt
place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth

I don't like to try and pass it off as pasta. It's is a credible side dish served w/ butter, salt, pepper and NUTMEG. And, it keeps great in the frig so I can have it with grilled whatever we're having for several days. I cook it to tender but still crunchy (not tooooooo cooked).

I know this is weird but I'll also add it to my scrambled eggs.

I do what I do for all squash: bake in the oven at 350 for about an hour (some squash like less, like 30 minutes for zuchini or summer squash, others like longer 60-90 minutes for some winter squash) Just test when it's soft, then scoop out the content or top with your favorite spaghetti toppings in the shell. I like meat-based tomato sauce, cream-sauce with bacon, mushroom sauce, all flavored with garlic, basil, Italian herb mix, sea salt.
