    I grow my own spaghetti squash and cannot say enough about this wonderful veggie! speed up the process with no change to the taste or texture, use the MICROWAVE!!! a nice medium (typical) sized squash takes about 10 mins on high in a shallow baking dish with a small amount of water and salt to create steam. follow same steps as in this recipe just use your microwave. Also, be adventurous, this squash is fabulous with butter and dried italian herbs, or drizzled with rosemary infused olive oil (a cinch to make) if it sounds good on pasta it will be great with this squash!  -  19 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious. I added quartered campari tomatoes to the sautee. Threw the squash in a buttered casserole dish, mixed in the sautee and topped with an italian cheese blend. Baked until cheese was bubbly. Awesome!  -  26 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is very good. Although this was my very first time preparing and eating spaghetti squash. It's easy to prepare and doesn't require a lot of ingredients. Next time I will add more seasoning, maybe parsley or other herbs, and roast the squash 10-15 mins longer so it's not as crunchy and more tender, I will use this again, thanks (:  -  06 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
