    I tend to eat a ton of spaghetti squash and this is just another way to make it. The spices are all approximate.

      I thought that this was a very versatile recipe and lends itself well to a little modification. I ran out of diced tomatoes with chiles, so I used diced tomatoes and added some canned chiles to the mixture; I omitted the black olives because I didnt have any; used a little less corn (ran out); and used a medley of cheeses (mostly cheddar with a little mozzarella and Jarlsberg mixed in). I thought the casserole was flavorful and I really enjoyed all of my bites that included a lot of cheese. After cooking, the casserole was a little bit watery, so we drained some of the excess liquid before serving. This reheated well for leftovers the next day. I served it as a side to Green Chile Baked Chicken 2351615. Thanks!

      I love spaghetti squash, and have tons of it. I tried this recipe and found it lacking something. I added 1lb of ground beef. Still needs something. All in all--not bad
