Something good (and healthful!) for supper

Have you ever tried spaghetti squash? I had never tried it until recently. Both Rob and I really like it and it is very easy to prepare. I can find it here in town at the Farmer's Market.

Here is how you can cook it:

Wash the squash and then cut it in half – this is probably the hardest part of cooking the squash.

Remove the seeds from the squash and discard.

Place the squash cut side up in a baking dish, add 1/4 cup water, and tent loosely with plastic wrap.

Place in the microwave and cook on high for about eight minutes or until you can insert a knife into the squash easily.

When the squash is tender rake across it with a fork and it will separate into strands.

We ate ours tonight topped with some spaghetti sauce with some chopped up leftover roast beef and some cheese. It was really good, so don't be afraid to try it.
