MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 11, 2014

"Very tasty. I tossed the sautéed vegetables in with the spaghetti squash instead of serving on top of the squash to incorporate the flavor better into the squash."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2014

"This was really good! I usually just make spaghetti squash with prepared pesto or marinara, but the fresh veggies really added a nice flavor. I didn't add the peas, but I added everything else and it was great."
