I have found my new favorite vegetable. Spagehtti squash is so yummy. And you can cook it in the microwave. Anything microwavable is a hit with me. lol. All you have to do is cut the spaghetti squash in half. Then, using a spoon...scrape out the seeds and pulp in the middle of both sides. Then place it (cut side down) in a microwavable dish, cover losely with plastic wrap (leaving one side open for venting) and put in the microwave for 10-12 mins. (depending on the size of your squash). You repeat this procedure with the other side of the squash. Be careful when removing it from the microwave. It will be VERY hot. Let it cool. When it's cool...use a fork and start digging the "spaghetti" out. Drag the fork from one side of the squash to the other side. Then "spaghetti" will come out in long threads. You can add a sauce to the squash and eat it like traditional spaghetti. I just add a little butter, salt and pepper. It is soo good. Give it a try.

Love this!  
Cut peelings off the zucchini.  Cut in half lengthwise.  Coat with olive oil.  Salt and pepper.  Grill on both sides.  I like to get a little bit of char on them.  It gives it a sweet carmalized taste.
