Garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes come together to kick spaghetti squash up a notch. We like this as an alternate to rice or noodles when making Chinese stir-fry. It is also good served with grilled pork or chicken.

We really liked the flavor for this. I didn’t have any Chile flakes so I used chili powder. The only thing I will do differently is how I bake it. The squash didn’t get cooked all the way through. I usually cook at 400 and for the first half hour I cook it upside down in small layer of water. Once I turn it over then I (very carefully!) add whatever butter or topping I’m putting on. Definitely going to make it again. Read More

It was good but in the end it felt like it was missing something so I added more salt and some parm. Very easy dish to make that impresses. I also served it right in the boat for presentation. Read More
