Why, YES, YES it does!! 

Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite in the squash family.  In fact just the other day at the marker I really wanted to purchase one, but I resisted, and low and behold Bountiful Baskets made my wants a reality!  I love it when that happens. 

Can I make a suggestion?  No big recipe here.  Just serve it in place of noodles with your spaghetti.  I promise, it's the only way to go!!  

Let me know if you try it... 
**The recipe Lisa posted would be awesome with spaghetti squash. 

**In case yours didn't come with a directions sticker or you already removed it, here's what you do:  poke holes in your squash using a fork.  Microwave for a few minutes to soften it up a bit.  Cut the squash in half, lengthwise and remove the seeds.  Place face down in a dish with a shallow layer of water, cover with a lid, then microwave or bake until tender. Then use a fork to scrape the "noodles" out.  It always takes longer than the sticker says to cook, so just check it after 15 minutes (microwave) and then every 5 minutes or so from there.
