I found this recipe in a Low-Carb cookbook. The sweetness of the squash mixes well with the spice of the other ingredients. Low-carb and vegetarian!

Microwave the spaghetti squash to save time: cut squash in half and remove seeds, cover cut sides with plastic wrap, place cut-side down on plate, microwave until you can pierce squash with fork. Continue with recipe.
