    Cyn's Note:

    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.

      Wow! This was really something special! I added a cup of chopped onion, a cup of chopped bell pepper, and a small can of sliced black olives. I also served with freshly made Pico de Gallo (#33861) and the whole thing was FABULOUS! YUM!

      Who would have thought that such simple ingredients would be SO delicious! My husband and I enjoyed this so much, and he's always a little skiddish about a dinner without meat. Oh, and don't forget that you can roast the seeds of the spaghetti squash with a little olive oil & salt. They're great to munch on while you are cooking dinner! I just threw mine in the oven on a separate pan while my squash was cooking.
