How to serve Spaghetti Squash

The hands belong to E. The squash is my own rendition. Ready? Pierce the skin of a spaghetti squash and microwave for about 5 minutes, or 'til heated through. Finish baking in a 400F oven, maybe 20 minutes? While the squash is baking, brown a few T. butter on the stove (cook the butter 'til the solids begin to turn brown, then remove from heat). Find sage, mustard, onion powder/granules, nutmeg, salt. Combine say, 1/4 t. sage, a pinch of dry mustard, 1/2 t. onion, a pinch or so of nutmeg, 1/8 t. salt (or omit salt). When the squash is done, remove and slice in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and discard. Place cut side up on a plate, drizzle with the browned butter, sprinkle with seasoning mixture, and cover liberally with Microplaned myzithra cheese. Serve immediately with a nice salad, some good bread, and try not to eat the whole thing yourself. Slurp. As my mother said, "Why eat spaghetti squash any other way?"
