Unable to stand the suspense any longer, Lissa went out to the garden and seized the largest squash from the volunteer plant and marched back to the kitchen. It was still green, but she had 14 more on the plant so one could be sacrificed.
She made quick work of quartering and seeding the squash in preparation to roast, sprinkling each piece with garlic powder and salt and roasting in a 425` oven until fork tender.
When it was done, she excitedly took it out of the oven and waited, toe tapping, until it was cool enough to test.
Hoping she was right, Lissa took the fork and, hand shaking, began to scrape…
Indeed! It was spaghetti squash!
