Sprouted Spaghetti Squash Seeds

I just got around to splitting open my spaghetti squash (CSA delivered 2 weekends ago) and the seeds in the center were sprouted! Is the squash still ok to eat? What about the sprouted seeds? (I usually roast and eat like regular pumpkin seeds.)

  1. I've eaten spaghetti squashes that had sprouted seeds before; didn't notice any difference in them. It should be fine. I don't remember if I ate the seeds or not, but I usually do. Probably depends on how much they were sprouted; if it was only a little sprout, I probably would have eaten them, but if it was a big root sticking out I'm not so sure.
