Many of you, I am sure, are at least aware that there is a winter squash called "spaghetti squash." It gets this interesting name because when it is cooked, you can remove the flesh of the squash with a fork and it looks a lot like spaghetti. Being a winter squash, it keeps well on the kitchen counter. Most groceries in the USA carry it throughout the winter. The price can vary, but it is a wonderful meal if you like it... which I do... Very Much. By the way, it is also easy to grow in your own garden.
To cook a spaghetti squash, cover it with water in a pot, bring it to a boil and simmer until a knife inserted goes in easily, once you get past the tough skin. Then, drain the squash, and let it cool for a while. That way you won't get burned when you are preparing it for the table.
Next, cut it in half, long-ways, use a spoon to scoop out the seeds, and then a fork to shred the flesh of the squash.
If you are a lover of vegetables, give spaghetti squash a try!
