Just be careful with some of the squashes. Think of cutting a pumpkin before cutting into the squash.
Mostly you will be trying to half the squash, scoop out the seeds and and seed fiber. From there you can follow most recipe.
Simply you can place the cut side down in a pan. Place in the oven at 350 to 375 and let it roast for about 45 minutes to an hour and fifteen.

Slydeglyder and Conrad, you must both like cooking. I have never tried replacing any foods that I am trying to avoid. I just stop eating them. I am not the best cook- except for Italian and seafood (those are my favorites). I think I will try these ideas out. I've heard spaghetti squash makes a great replacement for noodles. I never knew what to do with them though, so thank you very much! I guess I need cooking lessons for healthy versions of my favorites foods.

I cook by tossing in the pan for the most part. If avoiding noodles altogether a squash might be the thing. Something like a butternut, acorn or spaghetti squash. Cut into julienne strips or sliced thin like a flat noodle. Would be the last thing in the pot, because the cook time would be short.

Have you tried summer squash/zucchini? I would think to peel, cut in half, and scoop seeds out. Then a sharp knife should be able to slice any length or thickness you would like. This might be a good use for the overgrown fibrous kind.

I am trying something new tonight. I made chicken soup without noodles. It took me awhile to think of a vegetable that would give me the texture of noodles and taste good with chicken. I think it will be one of my new favorite cold weather receipes. If you have a favorite and want to share, feel free to add it here.
