"Tasty way to serve veggies. My husband enjoys some meat with his meals, so I have also made it adding some cubed chicken breast and it was very good."

"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."

"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."
