Tried this recipe to-night-had not made spaghetti squash in several years. The seasonings were excellent! I used margarine instead of butter and garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I only used 1/2 of the squash for the two of us and scaled back the seasonings accordingly. DH really liked it. I also cooked it in the microwave in a pyrex dish covered with plastic wrap for 8 minutes, following a tip I had read elsewhere, since I was broiling a steak in the oven. The next time I am preparing an oven cooked meal will try the oven method described here-have a feeling it might turn out better-the microwave method was good but it had a little too much crunch for my taste even though DH liked it. In any case, will definately make again!
