    Love spaghetti squash!!! I’ve used it also as a substitute for meat in tacos. Cook and shred, add to pan with taco seasoning (I use a homemade, salt-free version) and water just like you would ground beef and voila… It’s delicious!

    I put mine in whole! Spaghetti squash can be very difficult to cut raw. Cooking it first makes it slice like butter-and the seeds just fall out. Much easier! I crumple some foil into 2 golf ball size balls, lay the squash hole onto the balls for height and add about 1/2 to 1 cup of water. Cook on low 6 hours.

    Absolutely loved this, it was so easy to make! I’ve never had spaghetti sqash before but it will definitely become a regular in our house. I made the spaghetti squash with regular spaghetti sauce over it. My daughter and I both had seconds! I would love to hear other ideas of how people use spaghetti squash.

    Too bad I didn’t think of this before I hit the submit button…if you put hot sauce on hot squash, it will have a mushy texture so allow it to cool and set for a bit before topping with sauce.

    Not a review…just a recipe tweak…before turning on the heat, drizzle with 50/50 mix of evoo and canola oil, season with S&P to taste, fill “bowl” of the squash with fresh, thinly sliced garlic cloves, again to taste. Powders and jarred garlic do not work in this recipe. I have always baked spaghetti squash like this in the oven and it is perfect every time.
