Spaghetti Squash recipes

Since I'm still having trouble deciding which amongst these recipes I'm going to make to use up the spaghetti squash, I decided to share them all. I have to admit, spaghetti squash ranks up there with boiled spinach and the likes as a least favorite food memory, probably because my mother always tried to serve it like spaghetti: drowned in tomato-y pasta sauce and Parmesan cheese. So it's not something I go out and voluntarily buy, but since we don't throw food out around here, and I've come great lengths in abandoning food aversions and "outgrowing" a distaste for certain foods particularly since participating in the CSA, I have resigned myself to finding more unique ways to prepare this interesting vegetable. So here are some of the ideas that I have stumbled across recently:

Bon Appetit!

P.S. If anyone happens to try one of these ideas, please leave your thoughts/advice in the comments!

I love spaghetti squash simply prepared with butter, salt and pepper.

I am also guilty of serving it with marinara and cheese! I love it that way, though. I bake the squash and put it in serving bowls, with a pat of butter and salt and pepper, then put a nice thick eggplant marinara and put mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on top.

I made the New Mexican recipe (the first one listed) and it was so good! We're not big fans of spaghetti squash, but that one was worth buying squash for. It was quite time-consuming, but delicious :)
