For anyone who read my humourous spaghetti squash incident last week, I wanted to post an update. After obtaining another squash, I decided to try again. I did microwave the squash, not sure for how long, since I have a sensor cook microwave. It was still a bear to cut in half, but I did manage to cut it. Although it was not equally in half, but I didn't care too much. Scooped out as much of the seeds as I could, THAT was hard and darn stringy too, but persevered. Baked it, let it cool, and then proceeded to make the above recipe (Spaghetti Squash and Vegetable Gratin)
All I can say is YUM!!! The casserole creates a lot of juice when it's baked, but that was OK in my book. I'm looking forward to leftovers, and I found out I like spaghetti squash! I followed the recipe pretty closely but I didn't meaure anything, and I know I used more garlic than it called for. I may have also used less cheese. And I used dried parsley cuz that was all I had.
Regardless, thumbs up! :)

Glad you liked the Spaghetti Squash and Vegetable Gratin. I made it again last weekend for the first time in about a year. I subbed some red and green pepper for some of the zucchini and really liked it with the greater variety of vegetables. DH and I really do love this dish too. I refrigerated our leftovers in the same dish I had baked it in and then the next day before reheating I just sopped up some of the extra liquid with paper towels.
BTW, I like the result I get when I bake the spaghetti squash in the oven as opposed to microwaving it. The squash itself seems less mushy when baked.

Mmm, red and green pepper. I'll have to keep that in mind for next time!
I'm glad you like the oven method better. I had a feeling the microwave would not make it as nice as the oven would. I grew up on strictly microwaved vegetables, and I can't say that inspired any kind of love of them in me. Since I've started doing things on my own, I've discovered I like them a lot more than I thought I did, which is good for any vegetarian to find out! Thanks! :)

Just wanted to say you should try the Greek Style Spaghetti Squash Salad that is in the recipe search. It is great...served room temp or even cold with feta cheese...YUM!
