    Easy to make and cut this way. I let the outside get brown for greater roasted flavor. Prefer the butter flavor to all the recipes with olive oil

    The squash turned out good, but more seasoning and butter was needed.

    I cooked for 1 hour but it was way too long. My squash may have been smaller than in the recipe..... also I didn’t check until my timer went off. Flavor was incredible.

    Loved cutting the spaghetti squash after it was cooked- so much easier (and safer for me lol)! My husband loves it sautéed in the butter and garlic, and we have managed to try out some other flavors. Awesome for a Keto side dish that even sworn noodle lovers and omnivores will love!

    I like cutting the squash open and pulling the seeds and stuff out before hand. I tried it whole and the seeds brought too much of the interior with them. Other then that though, this was very good.

    It was so delicious! I had never had spaghetti squash before and I did microwave the squash and I think I did it a little long but it was still great.

    I microwaved the spaghetti squash (instructions from a link on this site) just to save time. I never had spaghetti squash before and I didn’t know what I was getting into. I followed the recipe and it came out good. I will make this again and try and tweak the seasoning for a little more flavor.
