    I'm a firstimer, and I'd like to thank you for introducing me to a new favorite!! Stuck to your directions and it turned out AMAZING! I think two writers need to adjust cooking times according to squash size, perhaps checking progress midway through cooking time would be prudent, too long = mushy, too little = hard to scrape and crunchy, go figure. Thanks Lali

    This was really good. I did add a little half and half to make it creamy and it was perfect. I loved the easiness of making this. Will make again.

    My youngest teen daughter has been making her spaghetti squash like this forever. She eats practically the whole thing all by herself!

    This recipe is simply delicious. I had spaghetti squash just once before, using a red sauce and didn't care for it. I decided to give it another try after reading this recipe. It is wonderful! Since it keeps it's slight crunch (why IS that!LOL) it , to me , goes better with the simple fixins of butter , Parmesan , salt and pepper. I could sit and eat the whole squash this way! Thanks for a great way to fix my newest favorite vegetable! :)

    Love it Love it Love it!!! I think this is my newest favorite vegetable! I love the taste of this, it is great. What I did change was the cooking (like a prev review): 1 minute in microwave to pre-heat the squash, cut in half and scooped seeds, then in the mike again for 11 minutes facing down on a plate with a bit of water, and scraped with fork once complete. Thanks!!
