    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
