Spaghetti squash is available year round.
Spaghetti squash, botanically classified as Cucurbita pepo, is a new world squash native to Central America. The Spaghetti squash is also known as vegetable spaghetti, spaghetti gourd, Manchurian squash, and squaghetti. The Spaghetti squash's unique texture is attributed to the presence of a recessive gene.
Large, oval and yellow, this variety looks similar to a melon and has a moist, mellow, nutty flavor. This squash is known for its unusual, cooked, yellowish flesh that separates into long, translucent strings that resemble pasta. Spaghetti squash are ripe when their color changes from green to yellow, and when they snap easily off their vines.
Providing vitamin A and vitamin C, squash also contains some of the B vitamins. An excellent source of fiber, deep-colored squash offers the most beta carotene.
Spaghetti squash have a hard rind, and unique flesh that separates into strings when cooked. Microwave, steam or bake whole squash, then halve, remove seeds and scrape flesh with a fork to separate. Prepare simply, with oil and Middle Eastern spices, fresh herbs and cheeses, or tomato sauce for a "spaghetti"-like dish. Mix cooked squash with steamed greens and onions; add milk or cheese and bake into a gratin; combine with green vegetables and beans. Spaghetti squash will keep, uncut, for weeks at room temperature.
First references made to the Spaghetti squash in U.S. markets was in 1937, though it is believed to have been around since 1890.
