One spaghetti squash
some butter
Other stuff that suits your fancy, like more butter, brown sugar, or perhaps crushed garlic, or some tomato sauce
When I was a kid I'd pore over the Burpee Seed Catalog that came in the mail. I marveled at the picture of the prepared plate of spaghetti squash and the ad that told of a vegetable that produced spaghetti! Fast forward to last fall, when I was holding the squash in my hand, thinking to myself, "How am I going to cook this?" Well, this is how I did it.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. CAREFULLY slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise (it was tricky and I almost cut myself - be careful!).

Remove the seeds and the strings (save some seeds if you want to try your hand at growing it next spring!). Take a Tablespoon or so of butter and cut it into dots, and sprinkle the butter into each cavity. Place the halves into a baking dish and roast the squash at 350 for an hour or so.

Remove from the oven and, using two forks, scrape the inside flesh lengthwise to loosen up the "strands." Place the strands into a serving bowl. Then add your stuff you like, such as butter and brown sugar, or butter and garlic, or tomato sauce. Serve hot.

Enjoy! -Diana
