    looneytunesfan's Note:

    This is a good basic way to serve this crunchy, mild favored squash. For variety, top with sesame seeds, mix with minced fresh basil, or combined with fresh chopped tomatoes. A 3 pound squash yields about 6 cups cooked squash.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      The squash can be baked, microwaved or boiled. I choose to microwave. Place squash cut side down in a pan just large enough to hold an 1/4 cup water and cover with plastic wrap.
    2. 2
      Microwave on high for 14-15 minutes.
    3. 3
      When skin pierces easily with fork, drain and cool. Scoop out and discard the seeds.
    4. 4
      With a fork, transfer the spaghetti-like strands from the shell to a casserole dish.
    5. 5
      Stir in the remaining ingredients.
    6. 6
      Taste to adjust seasoning.

      Loved it! The squash was microwaved making this a super quick vegetable to prepare. It was topped with green tomato pasta sauce and chicken meatballs. A nice healthy meal. Thanks looneytunesfan for posting.

      Wow - I don't think I'll ever eat plain spaghetti squash again. I used shaved parmesan, and thought it worked rather well. It melted just a little bit, and gave the squash a nice tang. My 3yo tried it and then promptly wanted more.
