I added salt and pepper and really liked this recipe. It's simple, but there was something about it that just appealed to me.

Neither my girlfriend nor I cared for this; we think the texture and flavor of butternut squash would suit this recipe better.

My son just wanted buttered spaghetti squash. I used this recipe and the family thought it was great!

I baked for 45mins until tender on a cookie sheet with water @370F cut side down. Scooped it out in a bowl then added 3tblsp. butter and 3 tblsp of brown sugar mixed it well and served warm with chicken. Everyone loved it.

I am on the South Beach diet, so instead of molasses, I used sugar free maple syrup. I was a bit more liberal with the butter and the syrup. I also brushed the exposed cut edges of the squash with melted butter before baking. My squash took 1 hour 10 minutes and came out perfect! Yummy!

This was great! My squash too longer to cook due to its size, about 1 1/2 hours. But the flavor was great. I would do this recipe again. My husband loved it. It's a keeper.

This dish was okay, but needs a little something more. I've had a similar dish in a restaurant that added chunks of goat cheese for a little tang and variation in texture. I think that may make this a little better and more interesting.

Excellent! Made for a Senior Citizen luncheon, they loved it & asked that I bring it again.
