I like spaghetti squash too but the squash vine borer gets then first so I quit trying.

However I do store butternut squash and I have also stored spaghetti squash. The butternuts need to cure and harden their skins for a couple of weeks before storing and then I drop them in a 5 gallon bucket with a bleach solution before storage. This kills any spores or pathogens around where the stem attaches.

Be sure to leave a small section of stem attached. this also lessens the possibility of rotting at the stem end.
