Spaghetti squash, also known as gold string melon, is unique among winter squashes in that the flesh falls away from the shell in strands like spaghetti and retains a tender, yet al dente, texture when cooked. With just a little butter and salt, you can make a savoury flavour that is both delicious and low in calories. 5 to 7 squash can be harvested from each plant.
