Spaghetti Squash ... Mmmmmm

Spaghetti Squash
A dear friend of mine was in town last weekend and brought me a spaghetti squash from her vegetable garden.  It was so delicious (and SO EASY to make), I decided to share the recipe:

Spaghetti Squash

Take a Spaghetti Squash, clean it and slice it in half.
Scoop out the seeds.  
Put the squash halves on a cookie sheet, face down.
Bake at 350 for 45 min. - 1 hour.
Scoop out with a spoon or fork, add a bit of butter and pepper.

By the way, did you know that while the Catholic Church requires Catholics to abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent, Catholics are encouraged to not eat meat on any Friday throughout the year as one possible way to  offer a small sacrifice for Jesus who sacrificed his flesh for us ... on a Friday?
