How long until spaghetti squash goes bad?

I have had a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter for a couple weeks and was wondering if it is still good. Should I cut it open and smell it? How do I tell?

I've had them be ok for as long as 6 weeks. It will start to get soft on the outside, and turn brownish, when it's going bad.

I always cut mine open when I cook it. I have only had one go bad on me. Believe me, you will know when you cut it open if it has gone bad. Two weeks is not enough time for it to turn bad, though.

How long is it good for after it has been cooked? I have been throwing out half of it after several days because it looks weird. I don't usually eat it on consecutive days and hate throwing out the other half. Has anyone tried microwaving it, "fork pulling", and freezing it?

Connie, the last time i fixed it i microwaved it and fork-pulled it and added butter and a little nutmeg. I put the rest in the freezer and only finished it up a week later and it was fine. I shouldn't think that freezing it would be bad though. Just microwave it and it should turn out fine.

I have left them sitting on my counter for a month or so and they have been fine. I have noticed that the longer the squash sits the more callouses it gets on its skin, but they still seem to be fine inside. I do freeze my cooked left overs, too, as I am the only one in the family who will eat it.
