This is a great method to use squash as an alternative to pasta. Take spaghetti squash and slice it in half. Scoop out the inside and discard. You now season the two sides with butter and want ever other seasonings you like. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a baking dish place the squash upside down and add an inch off water in the bottom. Bake the squash for one hour. It will now be soft and the middle is easily scooped away from the skin. Just add some spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese and it is ready to eat. Most of these squashes come with a sticker on the outside on it, giving directions.
