As we try to avoid carbs, we often make spaghetti squash as a side or base to meals. We've been doing this for a year and at this point we pretty much just dutifully choke it down. I cut it in half, boil it for about 45 minutes (it must not be crunchy, ick) and serve with lots of butter and salt and sometimes parmesan cheese. I don't roast it because it takes too damn long to get it properly soft. I think it's around an hour and a half, and the flavor improvement isn't even that striking.
There has to be a better concoction than this. If people eat it, there must be a way to make it taste good! At this point, I don't even care if I have to throw some carbs in it. Thanks for your suggestions.
