TexasToast R's Note:
We grow fresh spaghetti squash in our garden, and this is about our favorite way to eat it. We usually leave the mushrooms out. My kids ask for seconds every time! It looks hard only because the ingredient list is a little long with all those herbs and seasonings. It is really quite easy to prepare.
