Ohhh I could eat a bowl full of this! My cooking time was shorter about 30 minutes as my spaghetti squash was small. It is so important not to overcook this if you want the squash to separate into spaghetti-like strands! Copying what a favorite restaurant of ours does I added julienned zucchini unpeeled--makes for a livelier more colorful presentation. I've also made this using sunflower seeds and it is equally delicious. Read More

I found the sage overpowering I would use only 1 Tablespoon instead of 2. Read More

This is SO good. It's a shame that the ONE person who rated this one star has to skew everyone's perception of how good this is. It's definitely 5 stars. I had to use rubbed sage (I used 1tsp) but it was still AWESOME. I loved every bite. The only flaw is my spaghetti squash was too small and it didn't fill my family of 4's tummies all the way. This would be a GREAT lunch dish because it's lighter than most meals. Read More

this is delicious. i sauteed some garlic, shallots, and onions, then sauteed the cooked squash a little bit. very tasty. for thanksgiving i will be doing basically the same thing, but doubling the recipe, maybe a bit more cheese, putting the whole cooked thing in a big casserole dish, and topping with bread crumbs. yummy!

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this recipe. The pine nuts romano and squash really worked together. I threw in some garlic and added my usual blend of spices(we like strongly seasoned food.)The only reason I'm rating it a 4 star recipe is because my oh-so-loveable hubby didn't care for it. But really what does he know? Read More

This was very good. I found fresh sage so I finally tried this. The only addition I made was some salt that had a few spices in it. I think theis would be really good with the addition of chicken to make a one dish meal. Read More

Very tasty even though I had to omit the pine nuts (friend is highly allergic). When I make this for my family next time I'll add them - they will really make this dish special. I grew lots of sage this year and dried it so I used dried sage in this (a heaping teaspoonful). I'm so glad to have another recipe that utilizes sage - I tend to forget about unless I'm cooking poultry or making stuffing. It goes very well with this dish! Read More
