We have been doing this for years its great! It's one of my families favorites! Except we dont use the butter, just cut the squash in half, put cut side facing down, when you can stab easily with a fork then its done (like a potato). Then use an oven mitt to hold the squash with one hand and scrape out the insides with a fork, then add brown sugar to everyones individual preference! It looks like spaghetti! (i.e. spaghetti squash)
Rating the recipe as is. It is wonderful. It is a little sweet for me but I have my own recipe which is a bit more involved:
Cut squash in half, lengthwise. Bake skin-side up, cut-side down, until it is done. Turn over and use fork to pull up strands. Mix butter, brown sugar, a small can of mandarin oranges and a 1/2 cup of sliced almonds. Toss. Put it back into the shell and place it back in the oven for 10 minutes to heat through. Family loves this recipe.
So good! I do something like this for acorn squash but have only made savory spaghetti squash. I added a tiny bit of chipotle powder and some sage. It's sitting on the stove waiting for my hubby to get home and I can't stop snacking on it!!
One of my family's favorite meals by far (we eat a ton of pasta so this is a great alternative). I also printed and gave this recipe to my toddler's school teacher and they're making it this fall. I try to back off the brown sugar and add a lot of cinnamon.
Too sweet for me! Texture is not like spaghetti for all those spaghetti thinking people! Much harder texture than spaghetti it was edible but will not try again unless something is different is put in it!
