Squash Spaghetti or Spaghetti Squash?

Either way you say it
SO tasty and healthy!
Here's what you do...
baked-spaghetti squash
Bake a medium-size spaghetti squash
at 350 degrees for one hour until tender
See my knife mark 
inserted to make sure it's done?
"Done" if your knife goes in easily!
cooked-spaghetti-squash
Cool the squash
Then split lengthwise into halves
Clean out the pulp and seeds
by scraping the sides of the squash
with a knife or spoon
Save the "goo" in a bowl
why?
the seeds can be cleaned, baked and eaten!
your cleaned squash will
look something like this...
now to turn a squash into spaghetti noodles...
Hold one squash half upright
scrap the inside with a fork
MAGICALLY
strands of squash appear similar to noodles
spaghetti-noodles
Both halves will make about 2-3 cups of noodles
your hulls will look like this when completely
cleaned out
spaghetti-squash
I removed the dark spots in my noodles
caused by cooking
not really necessary but 
it makes your dish prettier.

Place a serving of squash noodles in a plate
Top with your favorite gluten-free marinara or meat sauce
and you have
Squash Spaghetti or is it Spaghetti Squash?

I was apprehensive about serving this to my hubby
he loved it so much
I'm making it for the guys at his office!
I love him 
because...
 he's so unpredictable

Oh the squash-abilities,
