READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Thursdaynight cook

The guests were soon to arrive and I had no good ideas. I browsed the Six O'Clock Solutions cook book published in 1995 by the Vancouver Sun. A quick tri to the store (unfortunately NOT the garden) and I had a delicious vegetarian meal ready> Many compliments were received

My first time making spaghetti squash and choose your recipe because it is quick to prepare and I like all the main ingredients. I used black beans instead of navy. Perfect dish. I've already emailed it to my sister in law who is vegan. Thank you!!
