    Cooking Spaghetti Squash

    I bought spaghetti squash at a decent price. I'd love to hear the different ways everyone makes theirs. Looking for new things to try!

    That's how I usually cook it.

    Grame hit the spot, those are all simple and wonderful ways to enjoy it. I generally like it with minimal ingredients added to respect the delicious flavor but I'd really love to be daring sometime soon and do a alfredo with it - like maybe a nice shrimp and spaghetti squash alfredo. I'd cook the spaghetti squash like noodles and then toss with sauteed garlic and herb shrimp and drizzle with alfredo... top with parmesan cheese and lots of black pepper! That sounds really good... salmon would work nice too.

    We bake our in the oven, cut it lengthwise, scoop out the seed and then take a fork and pull down with it to make spaghetti like strands. Then we serve with spaghetti sauce. It's very good!

    I add potatoes, few vegetables, olive oil, parmesan cheese and any traditional pasta sauce. I use my oven to cook spaghetti.

    I just made Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies. It was really good. I found the recipe on allrecipes.com. Lucy

    Re: Cooking Spaghetti Squash

    Brandy,

    I make it very simply with just a little butter and cinnamon. I made it with spaghetti sauce once and we didn't like it that way. I have an old cookbook from a chef named perla meyers and she's the only one I've seen that agrees with me, that they don't pair well. But the majority of folks do like it with tomato sauce so we're the oddballs :)

    Besides with a little butter and cinnamon I've also baked it, remove the 'shreds' and cook to remove excess moisture and added them to quiches with other veggies, or scrambled eggs, which I usually add leftover veggies to. I buy butternut and acorn squashes the most though. Let us know what you decide on!
