This might be old hat, but I have to say I love the spaghetti squash!!!!!! :D:D:D

My diet before gluten-free was all pasta so the diet has been some what challenging! But I discovered the spaghetti squash and its texture is soooo good and its so easy to prepare.....I just love it!

In case anyone is wondering, all I do is stick it with a knife, like you do potatoes, then I microwave the whole thing for about 10 minutes, sometimes longer depending on size. Then I cut it length wise, remove seeds, use a fork to scape out the squash, which is just like spaghetti, then top how ever you would spaghetti!!!

I like it with butter and parm, but my husband likes it with spaghetti sauce.

Anyway, I thought I would pass it on for anyone who might be tired of rice noodles! :P

Lollie--Thanks for the tips on preparing spaghetti squash. I have been thinking about trying it for a while--I think you talked me into it :D .

PS--My younger sister's name is Michele--when she was little, they used to call her 'Lollie'.

I love pasta as well. :)

Have you tried rice pasta? (not rice noodles) It tastes the same as regular wheat pasta, but it takes a lot longer to cook. I buy mine at bulk food stores, it's almost as cheap as regular dried pasta.

I like spaghetti squash as well, but nothing beats a nice hot bowl of real pasta with homemade sauce.

Yum! I like spaghetti squash too. It's a good low calorie substitute for pasta. I just discovered a few days ago that it's great sauteed in olive oil with cubes of chicken or turkey and then seasoned with salt and garlic. Add a little Romano cheese right before serving and it's really good!

I've never heard of this; it sounds awesome!! I'm a big fan of butternut squash with insanely unhealthy amounts of butter. I'm definately going to give this a try. Thanks!

Oh, Spaghetti squash is a fav of mine, been eating for a long time, even before I knew to go gluten-free!!!!

You can also mix it (after it's been steamed) with a can of seasoned tomatoes, parmesan cheese, fresh basil and garlic, then bake and you have a yummy wonderful casserole/side dish
