Is it Spaghini or Zucchetti?

I was wondering if I was going to have this problem. After all my plants started coming up I realized that I probably should have put the spaghetti squash were the cantaloupe is and cantaloupe where the spaghetti squash is next to the zucchini.
The question is.... How should I cook it? Do you think it will have solid meat like zucchini or fall into strings like spaghetti? Either squash has little flavor so I don't think that will be and issue, but the spaghetti I scrape the seeds out of and the zucchini I eat the seeds. Can the spaghetti seeds be eaten? Also, the skin of the zucchini can be eaten but the spaghetti skin is too tough. What do you all think?

You do fall into some of the oddest dilemmas... lol it's just sort of a 50/50 chance of getting a good guess in, isn't it? My guess - treat it like a zucchini!

I have no idea, but I have the sudden urge to get something to eat,lol.

Hi! Considering they can be a bit bland by themselves, I think you should stuff them with say, meat and onions etc. Give it a go! Remember plenty of garlic.

Take Care,

Thanks for the suggestion, Peter. I don't think I've ever had stuffed squash. Sounds good though. Spaghetti squash is usually treated like/substitute for the pasta. Have you ever had any? After it's cooked it comes out stringy like spaghetti and then you put sauce on it.

Bob! I skipped acknowledging your comment. The veggies from my garden are tasting wonderful! If you were a closer neighbor I could share some zucchini with you. : )

WOW! Anita, I thought I had commented on this post, that's why I just commented to Peter's post. I'm still in Colorado and the aforementioned strange veggie is still setting on the counter at home. I have a house sitter that I've instructed to cook it up if it looks like it's going to go bad before I get home. I've also asked her to "document" with pictures so I can post about it. So I won't know till I get home what it cooks up like.
