 In answer to how to prepare spaghetti squash, I found this in the
 June, 94 issue of Southern Living:
                       GARDEN-FRESH "PASTA"
     The flesh of spaghetti squash, when cooked, comes out like
 strands of cooked spaghetti and makes a great light stand-in for
 pasta lovers.
     Prepare squash by cutting in half lengthwise and removing
 seeds. Pierce skin several times with a fork and follow one of
 the cooking methods below.
 To bake, prepare squash, and place, cut side down, in a large
 baking pan. Bake at 350 oF for 45 minutes or until skin is tender
 and strands may be loosened easily with a fork.
 To microwave, prepare squash, and place, cut side down, in a
 baking dish. Add 1/4 cup water; cover with plastic wrap, folding
 back a small edge of wrap to allow steam to escape. Cook on HIGH
 7 to 10 minutes.
 To boil, prepare squash, and place, cut side down, in a Dutch
 oven, add water to a depth of 2 inches. Bring to a boil; cover,
 reduce heat, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain.
 Cool cooked squash. Using a fork, remove spaghetti-like strands
 of pulp. Discard shell.
 Yield: 1 medium spaghetti squash equals about 4 cups cooked.
