Spaghetti Squash - What the Heck am I doing with it?

A few weeks back a friend came for dinner and brought me a spaghetti squash. Now I'm going to be honest here so get in nice and close cause after all it's kind of a secret...  I've never cooked with one... Yes, it's true.  In all of my culinary adventures I have yet to tackle the spaghetti squash.  It seems oddly foreign to me and as such intimidating.  I'd like to cook it tomorrow, or the next day so any advice is GREATLY appreciated. 

Do you cook with it often?  Or ever?  Is it a side? or used in a main?  Once again I'm ending this post with....HELP.

I baked one last fall and added a tomato sauce (possibly with lentils? I can't remember for sure) to it when I had scraped it all into spaghetti strands. I can look up the recipe for you if you are interested. It tasted good and I did mark the sauce recipe as delicious with spaghetti squash.

I bake it whole in the oven at 350 for an hour...
