:)I had some leftover spaghetti squash and tried this recipe. It's definitely a keeper. So delicious!


you can nuke (microwave) spagehttie squash real easy and i find that it a) takes less time and b) the sqash is more moist and tender. that is, if you do use microwaves...

i mix that with sauce and it's delish. i will have to try this version sometime.
