Very tasty! I am not a big fan of pasta so this variation with the squash was a very nice change!

MY REVIEW

Delicious! Easy to make and packed with flavor. Really healthy dish that I was excited to eat as leftovers. My boyfriend said he didn't even like spaghetti squash but would love to eat it again.

This recipe was positively D-lish!!! Both my husband and I loved it. It does pack a bit of spice with the steak seasoning. Some people may want to back that down a bit. It was, however, perfect for us. I cannot wait to make this recipe again. Yummmmm!

Just make sure if it's gluten free that you use G.F Worchestershire sauce, such as Lea & Perrins. Worchestershire sauce has soy sauce in it, which has gluten in the ingredients.

I thought this was outstanding, but the Boss is apparently not a fan of spaghetti squash served like this. He ate it, but requested that it not be made again.
