Spaghetti Squash

My friend Arran first introduced me to spaghetti squash.  I eat as the side veggie with a lot of meals I make in the fall.  It can also be used as a pasta substitute, but that's for another time!  It's so simple to cook, and tastes little to no preparation.
I  bought this from the farmers market by my apartment, and it was delicious.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Slice the squash in half and place on a baking sheet lined with foil.  I put a tablespoon of butter, cut in half, on each half before baking.
Bake for around 30 minutes, until soft in the center.
Pull the inside apart with a fork.  I also usually sprinkle some pepper on the squash before serving.
I made this as a side with steak, and it was perfect.  It's jam packed with flavor, and doesn't require hardly any additional ingredients.  This is definitely a vegetable you need to try this fall, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
