Spaghetti Squash

OK, so I'm not quite sure how I got this far in life and cooking without ever encountering the spaghetti squash, but I have (and haven't) and would like your help.

My son spotted it at the farmer's market and was really excited so , of course, we took one home. I've told him how we'll cook it and use a fork to pull out a bunch of groovy strands of spaghetti, so I'm hoping that much is true.

So far, I know that I'm supposed to halve it vertically, remove the seeds and roast it. Then I'm supposed to fork out the contents and fluff them up. But then what??

My five year old wants to put spaghetti sauce on it but I think I've convinced him that we'll want to go with another preparation. But since I've never even seen the stuff, let alone tasted it, I am really at a loss.

I do have some very nice pancetta and my garden sage is still good so I thought I might toss that together. But please, if you have any ideas at all for spaghetti squash, I need help!!!!
