Wow! I had some leftover spaghetti squash from a previous recipe (which was terrible). Thought I would give this a try instead of throwing out the rest of the squash. I'm so glad I tried it. It was superb! Light and full of flavor! I omitted the butter and cheese (didn't have any), and it was still great. Thanks for sharing!

I love spaghetti squash and thought this was good. My husband who is not a fan of spaghetti squash loved this recipe! So I gave it five stars. According to my husband, the "normally flavorless squash tasted really good". If you like the flavor of spaghetti squash without the "frills" this may not be for you. It's certainly worth a try though.
