    Late reply but this is what ours looks like. That 13 cup for $159 is a good deal. I've had zero complaints with mine.

    Seems to me like it might be a tad too sweet, depending on what you're going for. But I'd certainly give it a try. I think we'll be trying a LOT of different things over the course of the next year :)

    I just cut it, scooped the seeds out and then made a brown sugar glaze. Brown sugar, butter, a pinch of salt and about a table spoon of water. Heat that in a pan until it melts together then just dump it in the squash "bowl". A little water in the bottom of the pan then just used a spoon and basted the squash every 15 minutes or so. Takes about an hour and a half at 400*. Then just let it cool a bit and scoop it out and separate the strands.

    Yeah, pretty much. :) Some people skip the sugar and dry roast it then treat it like real spaghetti with sauce and cheese. Tastes good that way too.

    I think I may try the sweet potato way first... maybe mix some honey with the brown sugar and butter...

    this thread is getting multi-pronged. :D

    i have that same cuisinart food processor. if i had to pick one complaint, you have to run the tool with all the things inserted..you cant get it to turn on without every lid on there. safety thing. only the tiny shaft, if you have to drizzle in any oil. whatever. i'll live.

    XAKS..chili. i won my first and only chili free-style contest. i took dried red chili pods toasted them..and then steeped them in hot water. then i blended it with some of the water, some sauteed onions and garlic..cumin, salt, pepper. done. i braised a beef chuck roast with some beef shank in this red sauce (it's how red enchilada sauce is made, same thing). then i took the piece of meat out..super soft. and shredded it. chilled it. chilled the sauce, and pulled off the fat-cap.

    whoa. it was unreal. like pulled beef..but chili style. pfftth..no beans.

    spagetti squash. i just do it like regular squash. cut it open, spray it with some oil..bake, face down. shred, and serve with salt pepper. i dont do it sweet.

    Thanks man. I was checking my mom's food processor out this weekend and used it to make chocolate zucchini bread, it was super quiet. I might end up picking it up on Amazon, it's $155 +/-. Really was surprised at the noise level it produced. It was the first time I've ever used one, and it shredded perfectly 2 zucchinis in no time flat, it was ridiculous. I've always used a regular hand grater. :facepalm:

    They're a little bit of money but once you start using it its hard to go back to manual. I have a little one too that I use quick chopping of onions, garlic, peppers, etc.

    I used to hand grate 2 or 3 large potatoes for breakfast hashbrowns and it'd take 10 fucking minutes. Never again! :goingcrazy:

    I don't want to sound like a total woman, but food processors kinda changed my life.

    Pictures like this are why I'm hoping to be moved into a house out in the sticks by this time next year. I so miss growing my own.
