Method: Pierce the squash several times with a sharp knife. (Do this especially if you're microwaving it, or you may end up with a "Squash Explosion.")
Bake about an hour in the oven at 375F/190C. (How To Cook Spaghetti Squash in the Oven — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn | The Kitchn)
Microwave 10 to 12 minutes, then let stand for 5 minutes or so afterward to finish steaming.
Boil for half an hour or so.
Like pumpkin and other winter squashes, whole uncooked spaghetti squash is best stored between 10C - 15C, and will last up to six months this way.
If you have a room in your home that isn't well-heated, maybe you can use some space in it as a "root cellar" to store onions, squash, apples, and the like.
Our guest room often has vegetables on the bed in the cooler months of the year.
On the other hand, spaghetti squash will keep several weeks at room temperature.
