Preheat oven to 350║F.
Halve squash lengthwise and scoop out seeds.
Place squash, cut sides down, in a large baking dish and prick skin all over with a fork.

    Sound svery good - i love spaghetti squash! I do South Beach diet so wehn i'm really wanting some pasta and more than the 1/2 cup you can have on the beach I go for this since it is basically unlimited and I can have a huge bowl and really feel satisfied. It is also good with sauteed veggies. - 1/23/09

    Excellent recipe - spaghetti squash is great with tomatoe sauce. Another alternative is using frozen cauliflower which is often easier to buy. I add mushrooms to the sauce as well. - 5/20/09

    Love Spaghetti Squash! Love the feeling of over indulging, while knowing I didn't!
    I do my squash in the microwave... pierce the skin several times (you'll need a big serving fork to get thru the skin!) and microwave 5min per pound, flipping once. Let is sit about 15 minutes, scoop seeds and go! - 3/11/10

    This looks interesting and I'll probably try it.

    The ingredient details say there is only 1 cup of spaghetti squash total and yet the directions say each serving should have 1.5 cups. So that's throwing off the nutritional info. Could you change it so corretct HAPPYKAT71? - 6/25/09
