Spaghetti Squash Casserole

That funky squash with a twist- it cooks up like spaghetti! To begin, cut your medium squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out the insides JUST like a pumpkin. Bake at 375 degrees with a tab of butter, salt and pepper for 30-40 minutes or until the flesh shreds with a fork.
