Reviews for Spaghetti Squash Casserole Bake
"Quicker to halve, take out seeds, put face down in casserole dish, cover plastic wrap, microwave 15-20 min.. Use any topping you would use with pasta"
"very good, but I think I will try to spice it up next time. a little bland for us. I added meatballs to make it a one dish meal"
"Really time consuming!"
"It was great! I added in some chicken breast but left the rest the same... will definitely make again!"
"Delicious! VERY easy to make. The sketti squash took a bit longer than 20-30 minutes. I infact bumped up the temp to about 425 degrees for approx 50-60mins. I used a can of diced tomatoes because I did not have any tomatoes in the fridge. This worked out great! Make sure you drain the tomatoes before adding them. I omitted the mushrooms for the first time because friends/family don't like mushrooms. It was fine without them however don't omit them if you don't have to. Next time I may add green and/or red peppers (diced finely) and some spinach. This is my first time cooking with sketti squash and I will add this to my recipe book."
