    jfresh444's Note:

    Yummy, healthier version of spaghetti! Shrimp and colorful peppers and onions add a summer feel to this dish my mother and I created one night. Quick with microwave, but if you prefer an oven, bake the squash halves at 350 for about an hour or until soft. Capers would make a good addition to this! Spaghetti sauce has great basic taste so it could be a healthier base to any pasta dish. Serves four for a delicious dinner or a side could serve 8-10.

      This is a good recipe but we felt like it missed seasonings. Maybe dried herbs would have more flavor. And even fresh parmesan could be great. Thanks jfresh444 :) Made for PAC spring 2011
