We're lucky enough at my workplace to have quite a nice employee cafeteria (which is actually open to the public as well).  Paul, the food service genius who runs the place, comes up with some really great stuff. 

Today he had a "lo-carb luncheon" that consisted of your choice of ham or chicken, with garlic spaghetti squash and some steamed broccoli. 

It was the spaghetti squash that really caught my eye.  I totally dig it.  My mother never went within 100 yards of one as far as I know, so I am one of the (apparently) few who was never traumatized my childhood exposure to this oft-maligned squash.  I don't cook it very often at home, largely because my wife is one of the traumatized, but I think she's starting to get over it.  It's a great vegetable.  You can do just about anything you would with pasta, only it's not full of bad-for-you over processed white flour and dreaded carbs.  This was very well executed, plenty of garlic, nicely al dente.  Mmmmmmm. 

Do yourself and your palette a favor and check out a spaghetti squash near you.
