KevinPa help with Spaghetti Squash Pie Pls.

Help do you grease the pie plate when you make the spaghetti squash pie or does the butter keep it from sticking?
Can you tell I can't cook on my own?
Thanks so much!

I didn't grease mine maria, but then I wasn't worried too much about it sticking. The pie plate that I use to make it in is some kind of stoneware and not much sticks to it. If you did use a little light butter I am sure it would not hurt.

Thanks for the quick reply! I did not grease the dish I used two one pyrex pie plate 9 in and one oblong corning ware dish. I guess that I had a lot of squash because the 9in overflowed (I had a feeling it would so I stuck a cookie sheet under it) I am not sure if the cookie sheet slowed down the cooking or if because I overstuffed the pie plate. It took a little longer to cook but it did not stick.
It is yummy good!
Thanks for the recipe!

One more question, mine had a lot of liquid at the bottom after it cooled and I ate half of it. Was that because I did not do a good enough job squihing the water out of the squash?
It was good anyway!
Thanks again.

The first time I made it I noticed that also but I roast my squash now and it turns out much drier that way. What I have been doing as of late is when I buy spaghetti squash I roast it and then vacuum seal it until I am ready to use it. It keeps quite well in the fridge that way.

How do you roast it? I cut mine in half and bake it upside down in a lg baking dish with a little of water at 350 for about 50 - 60 minutes. Is that what you mean by roasting? Or do you do it dry?

I have an insulated bar pan (like a cookie sheet with about 1 inch sides) that I put a cooling rack on with about 2 T. of water. I roast it in the oven on 350 on the cooling rack for about an hour. The water is usually gone by the time its done. I start checking it around 50 minutes cause I can pretty much tell by sight when its done.

btw I cut mine in half also and take out the seeds.
