The reason so many people use it as a pasta substitute is because of the way the flesh becomes stringy, resembling spaghetti noodles (i.e. the name spaghetti squash) sans the fancy spiralizer equipment.

One of my favorite recent discoveries is squash blossoms. They are in season in summer and are often found at local farmers markets, since they are often too delicate and go bad too quickly for most grocery stores to keep them in stock. Whenever I see them hit the stalls in summer I have to grab some – they are just too pretty to pass up.
