I wonder if the seeds you saved were from a hybrid variety? I've never had spaghetti squash look quite as pumpkin-like as yours does. Curious to hear what you find once you cut one open!

My spaghetti squash was also a star of my garden this year. I was surprised to find that some of the squash matured in July. As you described, the skin color changed from green to yellow so I picked it, cut it in half, cooked it flesh side down with a little water in the microwave for ten minutes and served it by scraping the flesh out with a fork. It was wonderful even if the skin had not completely hardened. We like it best with pesto sauce or tomatoes, meat sauce and parmesan cheese over the top. We enjoyed them over the summer and still stored some for winter. Thanks for the good article.
