    I buy it at my local market in the summer / early autumn. Also sometimes in Sainsbury. But it is easy to grow - needs plenty water though.

    I agree with breadsauce. Very easy to grow and drinks a heck of a lot of water!!! Well worth the effort!
    I'm not a complete idiot! There's parts missing!!

    Did you ever find spaghetti squash? Desperate to try it myself, it makes me sad seeing great recipes I could only make if I lived in the US!

    I've managed a few times...but I believe that the season is quite short (or so I've been told). I think late summer/early autumn is the time to get it (although I could be wrong). I believe Waitrose stock it sometimes and I've gotten it from a local organic shop and healthfood store.

    It is, by the way, amazing.....roasted then tossed with butter and seasoning.

    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.
