Drain squash and cool. Using a fork remove spaghetti-like strands. Measure 3 cups of strands; set aside. Remove remaining strands for other use. Steam vegetables 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain well. Combine squash strands and vegetables, tossing gently. Cover to keep warm; set aside. Saute garlic in margarine in a small saucepan; remove from heat. Add milk, cheese, buter flavoring, and seasonings to saucepan.
