I just tried this and I loved it. The only change I made was to add a little lime juice. We love spaghetti squash and this is a great change. Will definitely make again.

Very easy. I also added chopped zucchini since I had one to use up.

Love this dish!! Quick and easy, and stores in the fridge surprisingly well. I add a little cheese on top, being careful to not make it too salty! Yum!

So very tasty and fast to prepare. Next time I will use home made salsa to reduce the salt as store bought salsa has far too much salt. The avocado is such a nice added touch.
