Squash season is upon us dollopers and oh is it tasty! A favorite? Oh no, I can’t pick just one but the options for spaghetti squash do seem to be endless so that’s where we’ll start. Have it as a side as is, or add a little butter, or parmesan, or brown sugar, or treat it like pasta and top it with a sauce. But lets not get ahead of ourselves and start by counting to 10 because that’s how easy cooking spaghetti squash is!
