The Best Spaghetti Squash Recipes. Master The Gourd.

How to solve this fascinating fall ingredient, once and for all.

Spaghetti squash isn't like all the other squash -- it's special. Don't be fooled by its customary squash-like outward appearance: once cooked, it turns into thin, pasta-shaped strands of squash (hence, the name). It's this impressive noodle-like quality that makes spaghetti squash recipes just a little more fun than other squash dishes.

We've already covered how spaghetti squash does not taste anything like spaghetti, despite the fact that the two foods look similar (and that you can twirl both with a fork). So instead of trying to use it as a carb substitute, give spaghetti squash some attention in its own right -- that's when it shines. See for yourself.
