Reviews for Spaghetti Squash with Sweet Peppers
"Hubby and I really like this. I didnt have any green bellpeppers, mushrooms or tomatoes and really wanted to try it. I substituted canned diced tomatoes (with onion and garlic) and it was very good. Next time I make it I hope to have some mushrooms on hand. This one is a keeper."
"This was my first adventure with spaghetti squash. Quite tasty! The whole recipe just seemed rather time consuming...that's why I gave it 4 stars. A fun thing to do when you want to try something different.~ Theresa"
"This was very tasty. I loved the flavors the sauted vegetables added to the spaghetti squash. I used it as side dish. I left out the salt and used salt-free chicken broth. I will definitely make this again."
"Excellent! Never tried spaghetti squash before - it was easy to cook. But watch out while separating strands, heat is trapped inside and it gets quite hot. This was such a fresh main dish, we dont usually eat meatless but it was so flavorful that it didn't matter. I did sprinkle on some pepper and abit more parmesan."
