Spaghetti with Spaghetti Squash

I don't know how the name come to this squash as Spaghetti Squash until after I made this recipe. I have always used butternut squash when my son was a baby to make his baby food. and recently made a curry with Acorn Squash. And next one in line is Spaghetti Squash. As this is my first time to use this vegetable I have browsed little bit about how to use it. There are so many ways to use but before everything this vegetable needs to be baked first. After that this can be buttered and eaten as it is or add it to your pasta. Today I am going to make a Spaghetti with Spaghetti Squash. The baked Spaghetti gets separates like strings and looks like noodles, that's why it is called Spaghetti Squash or Noodle Squash.
 Look at the Beautiful Golden Color to Pasta, Yes Of Course it is because of Spaghetti Squash :-)

Cooking Spaghetti Squash:

  1. Cut the Squash vertically and bake it facing downwards in the oven at 350F for 40 minutes.
  2. After 30 minutes turn them over and sprinkle the curry powder on it. and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Take it out and let it cool. Then take a fork and start scratching the squash. It comes like long strings or noodles.

Preparation of Pasta:

  1. Cook the Spaghetti according to directions. Before it taking out from flame add the Broccoli Crowns to the cooking pasta. Then Turn off the Heat and immediately transfer the pasta and run under cold water. (this will stop cooking pasta any more).
