Re: talk to me about spaghetti squash

My mom used to make spaghetti squash with a VERY VEGGIE marinara. carrots, bell peppers, onions, diced tomatoes, and zuchinni.

I make spaghetti squash kinda like primavera, with sauteed veggies, topped with a little butter and parm cheese, a side dish to parm crusted chicken. YUMMY.
you want a squash that is hollow sounding, heavy for it's size, no soft spots, or blemishes. cut in half, scrape seeds out, and place cut side down in a baking dish with about 1 inch of water, microwave about 7-10 minutes. then just pull a fork along the "flesh" the strings and they should come out easily. if not cook it for a few more minutes.
good luck..this is a good way to get non squash likers to like squash..

Re: talk to me about spaghetti squash

Any other recipes? I just got my first one today. Once it is cooked and the strings are made can i just toss the strings with spaghetti sauce?

Re: talk to me about spaghetti squash

Oooooh, I LOVE spaghetti squash! I actually prefer it over spaghetti noodles. I will eat it with the spaghetti sauce that I am serving to the rest of my family, and I can eat a whole squash to myself. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
