    You could make spaghetti squash pancakes (think potato pancakes)

    2 eggs
    diced peppers
    diced onions
    minced garlic
    4 cups spaghetti squash, cooked (about what I got out of one squash)
    salt and pepper to taste

    mix and then fry small pancakes in hot oil

    My sister added crab meat and said they were good, too.

    we slice the squash in half. just don't cut off any digits. it's tricky. and then bake cut side down for 30-45 minutes. it really depends on size, so check after 45 minutes if you've got yourself a big squash.
    i always find that when i make spaghetti squash that i always end up with more sauce than squash so i use the left over sauce for a faux eggplant parmesan. slice eggplant into slices (you can peel it or not) and soak it. then dip into egg wash. i've used flax seed meal and coconut flour for the batter. the coconut flour really works out better if you're going to fry them up. either works fine for baking. i season the batter up with salt, pepper, garlic powder, maybe some red pepper flakes...just whatever you like. then you can bake or fry and top with cheese and sauce.
    yummo!
    i will maintain the truth
    i knew naturally as a child
    i won't forfeit my creativity
    to a world that's all laid out for me
    i'll look at everything around me
    and i will vow to bear in mind
    that all of this was just someone's idea
    it could just as well be mine - ani difranco

    If you like spicy seafood make Shrimp Fra Diavolo and replace the noodles with the squash prepared as recommended in the 2nd post.

    I personally coat it with some EVOO and cracked pepper, kosher salt before I bake it. YUM!

    you can use it in any way you'd use pasta; such as with marinara, pasta salad, alfredo sauce (http://primal.simplysunshine.net/?p=150), or you can make primal hashbrowns! After cooking, throw them on a well-oiled fry pan in a patty & cook until nice & browned. flip, then do the same with the other side!

    also, it's tasty tossed with fresh basil, olive oil, & fresh chopped garlic & tomatoes. warm through in a pot on the stove. throw some mozzarella on top & have yourself a party!

    Should the squash be baked face up or down? I have seen both ways in recipes....

    bake it face down. Stab the heck out of it. Go all Norman Bates.

    Here's what I like to do with mine:

    Face down is my recommendation as well, it helps keep it from being so watery as well.

    I have a wicked tasty recipe for lamb curry with spaghetti squash on primalpat.com

    I love spaghetti squash so much that I'll eat it, as it is, right out of the oven. It's so delicious with some butter on top, salt and pepper.

    Or lamb curry!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
