    Sweet..thanks
    Do you scrap it with a fork before putting the meat in or just scoop it as you eat it?

      Please someone kindly explain to me how to make my primal spaghetti look like spaghetti. I tried that two days ago. Epic fail. Instead of beautiful long and separated noodles like below, I had weird strings of 2 cm, mostly glued together. It was very tasty but I wanted to surprise my husband (a big pasta lover, primal for one month) with a spaghetti-like dish, so I chose to eat it all without even mentioning it to him. Did I bake the squash too long?

        i steam the halves in a large bowl 1/3 full of water in the microwave for 10-15 minutes, if i can pierce it easily with a fork then i let it cool then scrape it with a fork and get lots of noodles. the only thing i can think of to ask is 1, are you using a fork and 2, are you steam/roasting long enough
        beautiful
        yeah you are

        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
        lol

            yup.
            always use a fork and scrape it all out until you're just left with a paper-thin shell.
            Then you mix the strands with the meat.

              I'm making this for a Halloween party tonight. I added green olives and sun dried tomatoes to the marinara/meat sauce to make it look gross and innard-y.

                Delicious!
                Hey did any of you catch The History of Halloween on Food Channel a few years ago where the guy with the tour bus went to this lady's house and she made like bat eye soup & seitan? I want that green oozy soup recipe, but can't remember if it was bat eye or what!

                  For those, like me, who do not like spaghetti squash, you can make pasta using a spiralizer and zucchini. LOVE this gadget!! This thing has different settings. You can also set it to make a fettuccini shape, and it also slices. The "spaghetti" can get really long! A low-fi/low-money option is to make a sort of Paleo "egg noodle" by using a vegetable peeler on a zucchini -- makes wide strips -- which would work nicely here, too.



                  (You can also spiralize cucumbers, carrots, beets, radishes -- makes lovely and interesting salads.)

                    I am sure I roasted it long enough. Perhaps even too long. And yes, I used a fork.

                      Thanks for the tip, Tigerlilly! As beautiful as the pictures are, I do not like spaghetti squash much, but I do love zucchini. A spiralizer may be going on my list.

                        Yeah, once the zucchini pasta is cooked (I just steam mine) and the sauce and meat is slathered on there, it's pretty similar to the real thing. Even the most hard-core Prime gets that pasta itch from time to time, and I've found that this really does satisfy. Happy belly.

                        ETA:
                        To really trick the kiddehs/reluctant dinner companion, peel the zucc before spiralizing so there is no green part to your pasta.

                          Might have to invest in one. Zucchini is probably hubby's favoritest veggie!
                          He goes bananas for the Everyday Paleo Hasta La Vista Pasta Lasagna cuz it's made with zucchini
