      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!!

      Delicious! I ate waaaay too much! I added fresh basil to mine and fresh mushrooms and it was so good! First time to try spaghetti squahs, but now not my last! Just a note to others that had a difficult time cutting in 1/2 - my squash had a sticker on it that said to microwave to soften skin. So I used a fork to puncture a few times and put it in for about 3 or 4 minutes and it was easy to cut. Anyway, mmmm! Thanks!

      I can't tell you how great this sauce was. It was will worth the time it took to simmer as long as it was suppose to. I found after I stripped the squash from the rind, the rind itself was sweet and tender. Instead of throwing it out, I pureed it in the food processor and added to the sauce for the additonal nutrients. I hate wasting good food.
