Spaghetti Squash?

I am trying it for the first time tomorrow, using it as spaghetti. I am nervous because I hate squash, but I figure the sauce will cover the tast right? Have you tried it? Is it similar to noodles?

Its texture is similar to fine noodles.  I find it has a delicious slightly sweet taste.  I top it with butter, meaty spaghetti sauce, and cheese, then bake the whole casserole until the cheese melts.  Even  my kids love it!

I love it but I liked squash to begin with. It's so good with some pesto!

I've heard it was sweet and nutty similar to butternut. Which would be yummy in baked spaghetti! I won't have to use brown sugar in the sauce!

Yum, now I'm excited. I heard so many good things about fauxtatoes mashed cauliflower, so I tried it today. It was huge hit! Hope the spaghetti squash will be too!

I tried it for the first time a couple nights ago and was also very nervous cause I don't like squash either, but I actually really liked it. It doesn't taste like squash. And very good with a spaghetti sauce
