    TasteTester's Note:

    DH and I love spaghetti squash and usually just serve it with a pat of butter, but we have also tried making spaghetti with it using the squash instead of pasta, and it has turned out really well. This is another recipe I found that substitutes squash for the pasta.

      I was actually surprised that I liked this recipe. I made it mainly because we had all the ingredients either in the house or in the garden, so it was easy. I was expecting the tuna and vinegary type foods to be overwhelming, but they weren't. It was a nice balance.
