    3KillerBs's Note:

    If you're on a low-carb diet but crave the taste of spaghetti try this one. It goes well on the spaghetti too if you've got family members who don't low-carb. Or serve it to everyone on spaghetti squash. You can use fresh vegetables instead of the frozen and canned ones but pre-steam the broccoli so that the squash won't overcook waiting for the broccoli to finish. Try additional vegetables such as snap peas, green peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, etc. as available or substitute ground turkey or bulk Italian sausage as desired.

      Very good meal. Loved all the veggies. We made it just as written except we only used 16oz of spinach, ground turkey for the meat and after tasting, I doubled the Italian seasoning. BF and I had over spaghetti squash, DD had it with garlic bread...Unable to resist and had a bite of bread topped with the un-spaghetti...that was 5 stars! Very good flavor, and much enjoyed by all.
