Recipe by Soraiya Wilkins

I grow spaghetti squash in my garden and often try different ways to cook it. This is one of my favorite recipes for spaghetti squash, I found one similar in an old cookbook and just added my own things. It is really yummy!!

This was great! I had the feeling from the way you described it that it was sort of a improvisationally created recipe, so instead of mushrooms (which I didn't have) I added one whole minced yellow squash. I also just added a ton of garlic (I don't even remember how much). Great--Thanks for a great recipe! I've never had spaghetti squash before and now I think I will have it often!!
