      There is an online supplier called Holm Select. They aren't available till August though.

        I have always thought of "spaghetti" squash to be extremely misrepresented. Folks who gush about it tasting like pasta need to have their taste buds examined. It is squash, a mild yellow squash that happens to be in threads (like thick mung bean threads.) It does not have the texture of pasta, or the taste. Do you put spaghetti sauce on zucchini ? Probably not. Spaghetti squash does not fare any better. Use spaghetti squash like any squash and it will be fine. Using it like spaghetti is a disappointment.

          Yep. Pasta it ain't. If I need a starchy sauce holder, I opt for eggplants.

            I've always gone with a bed of broccoli florets or shredded savoy cabbage, microwaved in butter - perfect with anything I'd normally have pasta or rice with.

              I just saw butternut squash in my local butcher/grocer today and thought, now why does that seem familiar?

                  Grow your own! That's what I'm doing after never finding them online or in stores.

                  They are huge plants though, ours it well over 8 feet tall!

                    When it's in season, I'm sure waitrose stock it , also most green grocers should sell it , if you request it I'm sure they will have it.
                    If your in london, try panzers in St. John's wood or if Notting hill / holland park, there's micchouir bros (can't spell) http://www.allinlondon.co.uk/directory/1161/20962.php

                      My Abel and Cole veg box sometimes contains one when in season.

                              I've found them a few times at farmer's markets.
                              In the past year I have discovered that I am gluten, grain, dairy and legume intolerant.

                              I am trying to make sense of it all through my blog: http://www.goingagainstthegrain.co.uk

                                I'll defo buy one if I see one and let you all know. I'm happy to eat any squashes roasted in beef dripping or I use cauliflower wherever I would have used pasta previously.
