“Not too many people would know this pie is not made with coconut, but actually uses spaghetti squash. I wasn't sure what to do with a bumper crop of spaghetti squash and this quickly became an annual answer to a now non-issue!”

I was kind of skeptical, but this tasted AWESOME. Even after I replaced the sugar with Splenda, the eggs with egg whites, and the butter with butter spray. It's really delicious and tastes nothing at all like squash!

Just make it, seriously, I had my doubts, but I gave it a shot and it was great!!! For anyone not sure how to cook the squash, I cut it in half lengthwise, scraped out the seeds and pulp, and then placed face down on a cookie sheet and baked at 400 for 40 minutes. I let it cool for a little bit and then I scraped out the flesh with a fork. I had a rather large squash and got about 5 cups out of it, so you should only need 1. If you do not cook the squash long enough, the pie may have unwanted liquid. I will definitely make this again.

Wow. I was scared to try this pie, but I'm SO glad I did. It was so good. My mother in law and husband couldn't believe there wasn't any coconut in it! It did take a bit longer to cook and when I finally pulled it out after 50 minutes (and my oven runs HOT) it still didn't allow a knife to come out clean, but it was still great. I think I'd recommend cutting the squash up a bit. When it's long and stringy, it's tough to cut each piece. The whipping cream is wonderful on it -- don't skip it!!
