Spaghetti Squash-----Yummy!!!!

My friend from work, Amanda, is always coming in and telling me about the great things she cooked---especially after the weekend.  I love her recipes and try quite a few.  I was totally intrigued when she told me her spaghetti squash story.  I had never heard of it, but it's amazing!!!!!!!  Click here to see how to cook your own spaghetti squash, and you can use any pasta sauce you like.

First, wash the squash, cut it in half, then scoop out the pulp and seeds........

Next, rub a little olive oil on the inside and outside, season with a little sea salt and pepper.and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet, cut side down, like so.................

Bake the squash at 375 for about 30 minutes, until when poked it feels spongey.  In the meantime, prepare sauce.  I did a regular spaghetti meat sauce for this first try......

When squash feels tender to the touch, remove from oven and lightly rake a fork over the inside, and Voila-- it just falls away like cooked spaghetti noodles..............

It was so amazing---it tasted delicious!!!  You can serve it the traditional way......

Or, you can use the scraped out squash shell, place some shredded squash and spaghetti sauce back in it for individual/single servings...........

 Hubby loved this, and the squash doesn't seem to make you feel bloated, like pasta----
definitely a recipe to try when we have a crowd.  
Wouldn't  it be awesome to use a large squash and put the shredded squash back into the shell, 
and place it on a large platter for everyone to serve themselves!!!!!!

 Please let me know if you try this...or maybe you have a favorite spaghetti squash recipe 
of your own to share.....I'd love to hear from you!!

Thanks Amanda.
