    I love it with chopped tomatoes, garlic, feta, and basil. sometimes will chop/saute an onion too with the garlic if I have one here. a great meal by itself, sometimes with a little garlic bread.

      We bake them and serve with a little margarine or put spagetti sauce on top (any works) for a low carb/healthier meal.

        Odd, but interesting use: sub. the warmish cooked squash strands for bean thread (or "silver") noodles in cold Thai spring rolls. May require a few changes in herbs or dipping sauce, like a touch of maple. Or add a few sticks of smoked tofu to balance the sweetness. It's all really culturally wrong, but call it fusion.
        I also use them as noodles in soup. Haven't tried it, but was considering using them in a cinnamon-y version of the Indian vermicelli-milk dessert that I cannot recall the name of... lovely stuff, though.

          i think there's another recent thread on spaghetti squash with tons of ideas. i swear i just read it...

          anyway, i've roasted it, forked it out, sauteed some arugula, added toasted pinenuts, parmesan, a bit of butter or evoo, herbs, s&p...

            There's another post around here somewhere with a recipe called "spaghetti squash pie." Probably on the second or third page.

              I made this recipe from Gourmet last winter involving a slew of Moroccan spices (cumin, corriander, cayenne, garlic) with butter that was a cinch and also delicious. It's located over here: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/rec.... Loved it!

                I bake or steam mine in the microwave, scrape out the pulp into a deep baking dish, cover w/ homemade vegetarian chili, and top with a layer of Jiffy cornbread mix, and bake. If you want to get fancy, add some shredded cheese and/or chopped jalapeno to the cornbread mix.
