Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
1 spaghetti squash (about 1 1/2 pound)
4 tbsp butter
6 tbsp flour
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 cup hot water
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions:
1. Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and place the squash halves inside-down on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for one hour, or until tender.
2. Separate the squash strands with a fork and place in a bowl. Discard shells. Leave the oven on.
3. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and stir. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring continuously, for 5 minutes.
4. Dissolve bouillon cubes in hot water. Stir into flour mixture. Add the milk slowly and whisk to combine. Cook the sauce, stirring continually, until thickened (about 10 minutes). Add in 1/2 cup parmesan, salt and pepper. 
5. Add squash to the sauce and mix well. Spoon the mixture into a 3-quart baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan on top.
6. Bake about 30 minutes at 350, or until bubbly and golden on top.

    1. Ok, confession- I have never tried spaghetti squash and I have always been a little afraid of it... I don't know why. But this looks really good and not scary! I am going to have to try it.

    3. They simply need an auto to fit the bill for the credit. Loaning firms would just expect you to utilize the title of your auto as security for the credit. It isn't simply the auto which should be surrendered. car title loans chicago
