Which side do you define as the "face" side up? I'm going to take a guess and put the skin side up, since this would be the side you would see as a face on a jack-o-lantern. I hope my guess is right so I don't waste a perfectly good organic squash.


Thanks for this great idea... came out sooo nice!  I'm a carb addict and I wanted to see if this would keep me satisfied like pasta would- I'm happily stuffed!  My sauce was kinda different.. added 1/3 of a green pepper, 1/3 of a leftover leek, fresh ginger, cumin, cardamom, garlic & onion powder, black pepper and sea salt, and fresh basil I needed to use up.  Didn't have onion.. will use next time. 

I also just threw the squash halves in my toaster oven dry, face up, with a sprinkle of pepper, for about 25 minutes.  It was still a bit crisp, kind of al dente, and I really enjoyed it.  I was making it for myself but my mom came and stole most of it.  :P  It does smell great cooking.  I'm gonna have to make this more often, thanks!


fantastic recipe. i also changed it up a little for my liking.
like i added a 1/2 of a green pepper and some celery in the saute and it really added a lot of flavor.  :)


Pretty good.
This was my first experience with spaghetti squash and I rather enjoyed that part....but I wasn't a huge fan of the sauce....even after adding a bunch of red pepper flakes, parmesan, and more garlic, it still was kinda bland for my tastes....but I'm kind of addicted to store bought sauces...
I will definitely be experimenting with this though!
