I often use the empty squash shells as serving dishes for this unique side dish. The bacon complements the squash and Swiss cheese combination nicely. It's attractive and fun to eat! -Jean Williams Stillwater, Oklahoma

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place one squash half on a microwave-safe plate, cut side down. Cover and microwave on high for 8 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork, turning once. Repeat with second squash half. When cool enough to handle, scoop out squash, separating strands with a fork; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving drippings. Add the butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper to the drippings. Stir in squash and bacon; heat through. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese just until blended. Yield: 4 servings.

"Big squash are tough to cut but just stab it and place in microwave for 2 minutes it will be easier."

"I thought it needed more seasoning but it was good! My husband & I love trying new spaghetti squash recipes. I will experiment a little more more with the seasonings next time."

"It is hard to cut in half but it is worth the struggle. I did omit the brown sugar ( I'm Diabetic) and I used an Italian Blend shredded cheese. Then took some bread crumbs and melted butter and topped it and brown in oven for 2-3 minutes and what a fanstastic receipe, I will use this often for my self and company. Thankyou."

"This is a good alternative side dish. I find that the squash was too hard to slice in half so I poked some holes in it so it wouldn't burst in the oven, baked in shallow baking dish @375° for an hour, let it cool and then did all the prep work. Much easier than wrestling with the hard surface and taking a chance on cutting myself with an always sharpest knife. Good recipe though. Thank you."

"Just not a recipe I preferred. A little to bland. I am going to find another."
