I cut a medium size one in half last night and baked it for about 35 minutes on 350 degrees. Once it was done I scooped out the seeds and then forked out the squash into a container to use it for today's recipe. I had 1 cup last night though I put 3 squirts of butter spray and some garlic and a dash of Fat free Parmesan cheese it was a nice side dish for 1 point!
So today I decided to make a weight watchers recipe with it. I altered the recipe a bit because I did not want to use ricotta cheese. Next time I will try it that way.
Italian Spaghetti Squash Pie

Bake a medium spaghetti squash in the over for 30 min. and set aside
Saute a half of a pound of the extra lean turkey with 1 tsp of olive oil.
Toss in the garlic when it is almost cooked and set aside the meat once cooked.
In a frying pan saute the onions in the 2 tsp of olive oil and when golden put in the tomatoes, the Italian seasoning, garlic and bring to a simmer

In a 9 inch greased pie pan spread squash over pan like a pie base
