Of all the winter squashes that have made their way to the market, there's none I'm more excited about than spaghetti squash. Roasted, baked, or steamed, these thin, durable strands can be used just about any way you'd traditionally use noodles or spaghetti. They're also an easy way to get more vegetables on the table, and can sometimes be the trick to a lighter spin on comfort food classics. Here are eight spaghetti squash recipes that are not to be missed as the temperatures get colder.

1. Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

If I could make just one spaghetti squash recipe for the rest of time, it would be this one, hands-down. These tender, crisp veggie strands make the perfect stand-in for rice noodles.

3. Baked Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

Inspired by classic carbonara, this version gets an extra dose of richness with a scoop of ricotta before a stint in the oven. It bakes up with a crisp, golden top and a lush, creamy center just like you'd expect from carbonara.
