Spaghetti (squash)

I have seen spaghetti squash being made into a spaghetti dish on Food Network before, but I never thought I would have the time to do something that seemed so cool.  Turns out you don't need time or fanciness.  All you need is to buy a spaghetti squash (SUPER cheap, only $1.29 at Trader Joe's).  Then you put it in a 400 degree oven for an hour.  You don't cut it or anything, just take the sticker off and let it bake.  When it is done let it cool down before cutting it in half and scooping out the seeds.  Then you scrape your fork from top to bottom and get the spaghetti flesh out into a bowl.  Top however you please.  I used olive oil, garlic and parsley.  But you could use a pesto or red sauce.  Now this is a healthy spaghetti!*
