You can cook it in two ways
1. Throw the whole thing in the oven at 350 until it's easy to piece the skin with a fork (rotate at least once). This takes at LEAST 1 hour.
2. Cut it in half and cook it at 350 until a fork will run through it. This is probably 30-40 minutes.
Inside it has all these fibers and seeds. I've heard you can toast and eat the seeds like pumpkin seeds, but I say, if you like 'em so much, just buy them!
Removing this from the raw squash is a pain in the *ss!
When it's out of the oven, take a fork and go to town. Brush it right out of the gourd, it comes out looking just like spaghetti (or hair...). Allow to cool first for a less irritating experience.
Season once it's out. Use anything you would use on a pasta OR a salad. It works either way. So far, I've enjoyed it with a smoky barbeque sauce and doused in balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese.
It doesn't taste like much, but it serves as a really good base. I suspect that some raisins and spray butter would work nicely too!
