Admittedly, spaghetti squash is a really sad substitute for the real thing.
I've found that I really do like spaghetti squash when it stands alone, rather than as a weird, quasi-version of something else. Hubby, on the other hand, has never so much as tried it again after the initial, bad experience. But, I think there might be a middle ground.
Perhaps spaghetti squash would be good in place of noodles with a thin, Asian broth?
My husband fell in love with "thin Asian soup" on a cruise we took several years ago. The chef clearly specialized in Asian broths, and my husband has a culinary adventure with the soup each night of the trip.
I started with this recipe in mind. I put a pound of stew beef in the crock pot and topped it with 7 cups of water, 1/2 cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup of soy sauce, a tablespoon of red wine vinegar (I didn't have rice wine vinegar), a few drops of dark sesame oil, and some red pepper flakes. Then I snipped in some fresh basil and added about a cup each of chopped onions and carrots.
After about eight hours in the crock pot, the result was superb. I warmed the spaghetti squash in the microwave and then put it in bowls with a few more snips of fresh basil. Then I ladled the soup over it.
The spaghetti squash was firm and just a bit crisp: the perfect consistency for noodles in a soup. My husband even ate them! He had two bowls!
And, then, just for fun, here's a shot of my toddler attempting to eat the "noodles" with chopsticks just like Mama and Dada.
