All you do is:
preheat the oven to 375º F.
prick it all over so it won't burst in the oven, much as you would a potato before baking
put it in a shallow pan
bake for an hour
cool and cut in 1/2 lengthwise with serrated knife
scoop seeds and fribrous strings out
gently scrape a table fork around the edge to shred the pulp into strands
That's it. Then add butter and salt. Yum. They say you may top with tomato sauce, but for me I like it just the way I eat peas and yellow beans.
just out of the oven
the inside with both pulp and 'spaghetti'
pulling the edible strands
with butter and salt
