The spaghetti-like strands of this unusual squash are very good tossed with garlic and parsley. Be sure to cut the squash crosswise or else you will cut the strands in half.

Spaghetti Squash with Parsley and Garlic

1 spaghetti squash (4 lb)
1 Tablespoon margarine
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley or grated zucchini
1¼ cup low fat plain yogurt

Drain squash and cut in half crosswise. Scoop out seeds. Run tines of fork lengthwise over squash to loosen spaghetti-like strands; scoop out strands into baking dish or serving bowl.

Add garlic mixture, parsley, yogurt, and pepper to taste; toss to mix.

Steamer: Cut squash in half crosswise; scoop out seeds. Steam for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.
