Spaghetti Squash

We tried spaghetti squash for the first time last week. It's very easy to make and a pretty good substitute for traditional pasta.  The half on the top of the picture below has not been pulled apart.  The bottom half has been shredded with a fork into 'noodles.'

1 medium spaghetti squash

Preheat Oven to 425 degrees
Halve spaghetti squash lenghtwise.
Remove and discard seeds
Fill a baking dish with 1 inch of water. Place both squash halves, cut side down, into the pan.
Bake for 40-50 minutes. Squash is done with skin is easily pierced with a fork.
Remove squash from pan and set aside until cool enough to handle.
Using a fork, scrape out the strands of squash which now looks like spaghetti.
