      This is really a different way to serve squash and we quite enjoyed it. It is great for South Beach Dieters as it's almost like potatoes au gratin only it is "legal"! Once I got the dang squash cut in half it was smooth sailing. I used low fat sour cream and low fat cheese blend with cheddar, gouda, mozzarella and provolone. Yum! Made for PAC 2012, thanks for the lovely recipe.

      I really enjoyed having a new recipe to try using spaghetti squash.To lighten up the original recipe: I deleted the butter and cooked the onions with a teaspoon of EVOO. I used ?Light? sour cream and low fat mozzarella cheese. I also found it was important to use a large enough mixing bowl to evenly coat the spaghetti squash with the sour cream mixture. <br/>Thanks for sharing!

      I love this recipe but found it impossible to cut the squash in half, so I microwaved it for 5 minutes.
