"For a dish with harvesttime appeal, you can't go wrong with this veggie medley I created," assures Julie Varilek of Box Elder, South Dakota. "Served with breadsticks, it makes a satisfying main dish or a hearty side. I grow so much spaghetti squash, I often prepare this through February."
I often use the empty squash shells as serving dishes for this unique side dish. The bacon complements the squash and Swiss cheese combination nicely. It's attractive and fun to eat!
