  3. olive oil
  4. 3slicescooked bacon, crumbled

  1. Cut the squash in half and carefully remove the seeds.

  5. Let cool until the squash can be handled and then carefully remove the inside of the squash.
  6. They will come out in threads that look and act much like cooked spaghetti (thus, the name).
  7. There will be a much larger volume of strands than you think!
  8. Cook several pieces of bacon very crisp and chop into bacon bits.
  9. In a skillet, heat some olive oil and/or butter.
  10. Add the spaghetti squash threads.
  11. Toss with spices as desired and the bacon bits.
