"This recipe is in the Moosewood Cookbook. The first 2 times I made it I fell in love. Then quite some time later, I made it again for guests and it was like glue. I, like another reviewer, felt like the breadcrumbs had gummed it up good. I think in future I will try it again and use only a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs to top the casserole with the cheese. I don't understand what I could have done either. However, don't give up on this casserole - it's delicious - just be aware that the breadcrumbs can mess it up for some reason."
"I am sorry to say this did not go over well with us. The taste wasn't bad; it was the texture that was not pleasing. It was like mush; I think where it goes wrong is with the breadcrumbs, I'm not sure what they were supposed to do mixed in with the tomatos etc., but I do know that when added to the mixture it went from quite a nice looking mix to a gluey looking mush. Up to that point I think the casserole looked quite good, except that the squash seemed very fine strands. Ever have that feeling that you wished you hadn't done something?? I did as I was mixing the crumbs in, I even checked to make sure they maybe should have been sprinkled on top, but #11 is very clear to "combine squash, tomato mixture, ricotta, mozza cheese, parsley and crumbs", so I carried on anyway, cooked it and served it. It was not well recieved, sorry I made no changes to the recipe, it just wasn't for us I guess."
"I don't know what happened but this was one of the worst things I have EVER cooked!!..It was sloppy wet and disgusting..I cooked it longer to try and firm it up and it stayed wet...I threw the whole thing out!! Total waste of ingredients!"
"I read a tip on another squash recipe to microwave the squash for a fast fix - cut in half, place in microwave safe dish with small amount of water, cover with plastic wrap and mic for 10 min on high. Perfect and FAST!"
"I just made this for my family and they loved it. I have never cooked spaghetti squash before and I was impressed with the outcome. I would recommend this recipe to everyone."
"Taste is excellent done with fresh garden produce. Easy to assemble although squash took several minutes to bake first. "
