Spaghetti squash

Spaghetti squash are the big yellow cylindrical ones, so named because the inside looks like spaghetti once you cook it and serve it. This is a great way to fake spaghetti--roast one, shred the insides out with a fork, and put spaghetti sauce on it. Just like spaghetti, with no carbs and full of veggie goodness.

To roast them, just cut them in half, scoop out the seeds, and place the cut sides down on a lightly oiled baking sheet or pan. Roast at 350 for...oh, let's say an hour, maybe a little less. They're done when you can stick a fork in them. Let cool, and then run a fork over the cut side. The flesh will shred out in long, spaghetti-like strands. Put on a plate, add spaghetti sauce, and you're done!
