Spaghetti Squash

I'm a fan of all things Squash.  Normally I'd say butternut squash is my favorite.  There is so much you can do with it.  But, Spaghetti Squash is not to go unnoticed.  It is so good and so easy to prepare.  To make it even better, other family members who won't even take a bite of butternut squash love the spaghetti squash.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Wash and halve two spaghetti squash.  Remove the seeds.
In a large baking dish, combine 1 Tbsp salt with 3 cups of water and stir to dissolve.
Place the squash halves cut-side down into the water.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and flip squash halves over.  Place a 1 Tbsp pat of butter into each half.
Return to oven and bake for 20 more minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
Using a fork, scrape the pulp from each half into a serving bowl.  Be sure to pour the butter from the squash  into your bowl before scraping.
Fluff with a fork and serve.
