"I think this could of been really good, but I put too much thyme in it, I think I will leave that out next time, it had a really strong thyme taste. But I will make it again, because the other flavors were amazing and it is a good healthy recipe."

"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!"
