I've tried using spaghetti squash as a substitute for pasta a few times, but every time I do the dish ends up really watery.
I've been roasting the split squash for about 45 min in the oven, then scraping out the flesh and then mixing it with my sauce. When I first shred the flesh it's definitely moist and steamy, but it doesn't seem to be overly wet. A few minutes after I've added it to the pan with my sauce however, it renders off what seems like a cup or two of water.
Most recently I've even tried wringing out the strands in a clean towel over the sink before mixing it. That did seem to help, but it still watered down the sauce way too much for my taste.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to prevent it?
