I use a jar of no salt added organic spaghetti sauce to which I've added cut up organic veggies (onion, garlic, red pepper). Healthy & low fat. Submitted by:

Too much fat, butter, cooked in a microwave! Please! Live and let live. I don't use artificial sweeteners, non-fat sour cream, and the like, but I'll defend the right of everyone else to do so. Eat, adapt or ignore a recipe, but let's not be the Spark kitchen police. Submitted by:

I LOVE spaghetti squash & have this @ least twice a week. Pierce & microwave just to soft so I don't lose a finger cutting in half. Finish with the oven steam method, and serve with my new favorite ~~ butter flavored EVOO!! And a little salt& pepper. Yummy!! Submitted by:

good grief, a recipe is a guideline. If you do no like the fat content, butter or whatever: change it. To be rude and condemn a recipe is outrageous. The basic recipe/concept is a great way to cook the squash. Submitted by:

when i was a child, my mom put "burnt" butter on EVERYTHING!..i love it, but don't want/need the extra fat & calories..i use: 2 tbl butter, brown it, add 1 tbl olive oil, minced garlic to taste and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes..adds interest & cuts the "bad" fat.. Submitted by:

I simply adjusted the recipe to use a little EVOO and a less cheese and some salt and pepper and it was yummy. I can't believe the comments on here, the negativity is unreal. Come on people, just adjust..the..recipe. Furthermore, if it's not your preference, just move on to something else that is! Submitted by:

This should have been modified before putting it on sparkpeople. People are saying moderation, but how does moderation come into it. This recipe has 30 grams of fat in one serving. A whole stick of butter. So somebody couldn't find a healthier version for a whole stick of butter. Wow!!! Submitted by:

This is SOOOOO good!! And it's also great with spaghetti sauce - get whatever flavors you like or can afford to eat (so far as calories or dietary restrictions). I love the vegetarian sphagetti sauces - no meats - goes great with spaghetti squash! Submitted by:

The reason I "judge" it that some people who are new to SP may think that if SparkTeam posts a recipe like this than it must be fine. I LOVE SP, but come on, SparkTeam! Why would you post this with SO much fat? TWO tbsp. of butter per serving is NOT even moderation. How about 1 tsp per serv? Submitted by:

Try this with smart balance to give it all the flavor of butter but less of the artery clogging fats. But, yes, I agree, this recipe doesn't belong here as a featured SparkRecipe. Why SP would send it out in the email today is beyond me. Marinara sauce would be tasty though. Submitted by:

I can't believe the SP "Family" would judge. I was reading this recipe and instantly knew it was too much fat for me. But the calories and carbs are ideal. So just change it. No need to criticize!!! Oh yeah and the reason for the butter over the margerine..... butter is healthier. Moderation!!!!!! Submitted by:

sounds like a great low carb alternative to spaghetti. I agree with others. Just alter it to fit. As a "low carb eater", I rarely complain when a diet is high is carbs. I just alter it, you know. Submitted by:

There are a lot of diets out there...this one might fit into a no/low carb diet. For me, it would just be too greasy. I might try this with a lot less butter. Submitted by:

I do similar, but use butter spray and a sprinkling of cheese; then seasoning. It is good. My favorite is spagetti squash with homemade no sugar meat sauce.
I LOVE SPAGETTI SQUASH!!

I will not try this because it has too much fat. I agree with the other poster, how did this get on Spark? Why not just eliminate the butter and cheese and top your squash with your sauce? Submitted by:
