I cooked for 1 hour but it was way too long. My squash may have been smaller than in the recipe..... also I didn’t check until my timer went off. Flavor was incredible.

Good, could use a like flavor
Loved cutting the spaghetti squash after it was cooked- so much easier (and safer for me lol)! My husband loves it sautéed in the butter and garlic, and we have managed to try out some other flavors. Awesome for a Keto side dish that even sworn noodle lovers and omnivores will love!
I like cutting the squash open and pulling the seeds and stuff out before hand. I tried it whole and the seeds brought too much of the interior with them. Other then that though, this was very good.

turned out great I put a little more garlic in it but thats more so because we love our herbs and spices.

It was so delicious! I had never had spaghetti squash before and I did microwave the squash and I think I did it a little long but it was still great.
It was awesome and tasty

I microwaved the spaghetti squash (instructions from a link on this site) just to save time. I never had spaghetti squash before and I didn’t know what I was getting into. I followed the recipe and it came out good. I will make this again and try and tweak the seasoning for a little more flavor.
