"The guests were soon to arrive and I had no good ideas. I browsed the Six O'Clock Solutions cook book published in 1995 by the Vancouver Sun. A quick tri to the store (unfortunately NOT the garden) and I had a delicious vegetarian meal ready> Many compliments were received"

  1. My first time making spaghetti squash and choose your recipe because it is quick to prepare and I like all the main ingredients. I used black beans instead of navy. Perfect dish. I've already emailed it to my sister in law who is vegan. Thank you!!
  2. This was absolutely delish! We had this after a long day of remodeling chores and this was a very welcome, tasty, dinner treat! Even though I baked the spaghetti squash which added to the time a bit, it went together easily and quickly. We will definitely have this again. It was way too good not to! Thanks, Thursdaynight cook!


<p>I am an Australian Canadian retired teacher living in Qualicum Beach a small city on Vancouver Island (which is not in Vancouver) British Columbia <br />Each Thursday for the past years (at least 20) I have had friends for dinner... and yes, some of those friends have been coming for that amount of time. This started when I was living alone and gave me an opportunity to do some more creative cooking and now that I have remarried still gives me that opportunity.</p>
