Spaghetti squash produces yellow-orange fruits that weigh up to 1.2kg. It is the flesh inside that is eaten; it has a mild, slightly sweet taste that is great at absorbing flavors and is excellent for low carb/low fat diets. Use as you would with pasta - just add a tomato or cheese sauce.

Can either be cooked whole by baking in an oven for around an hour at 180C  but the squash must be pierced several times with a sharp knife or it will 'explode' whilst cooking.

When cooked very carefully cut open the hot squash and separate strand with a fork. Or they can be cut up prior to cooking, cut into halves or quarters and then scrape out the seeds and cook rind side up for 30-40 mins at 180C or microwave for 6-8 mins or boil for 20 mins or so. It is quite difficult to cut up squash so lots of care & a sharp knife is needed. When cooked very carefully separate strands of flesh with a fork.

The seeds can also be roasted for an extra treat. An unusual vegetable that is very difficult to buy in supermarket
