I only gave this 4 stars because I doctored the recipe but it came out great! To speed up the cooking process cook squash in microwave cut-side down in 1/2 in. of water for about 10 minutes. I sauteed fresh mushrooms and fresh spinach with the onion and added some minced garlic seasoned salt and pepper. I mixed mozzarella cheese in with the squash (about 3/4 c) and added a few dashes of hot sauce. Instead of bread cubes I used homemade whole wheat garlic croutons. It was delicious with unique flavoring! Read More

This is so good. I sauted an 8 oz package of fresh mushrooms that I quartered. I also added a 9 oz package of frozen spinich (defrosted and drained) and skipped the basil. I seasoned with kosher salt pepper and a dash of nutmeg(goes great with spinach). Last but not least I made garlic croutons to go with the fresh parmesan for the topping and it came out perfect. What a great way to prepare spaghetti squash as with the previos reviewer I also had one sitting on my counter waiting to be used. Read More

I COOKED IT JUST AS DESCRIBED EXCEPT I USED PEPPERIDGE FARM STUFFING INSTEAD OF BREAD CUBES AND IT TURNED OUT WONDERFUL. WE MADE IT AS PART OF EASTER DINNER AND IT WILL BE ON THE MENU FOR EVERY HOLIDAY NOW ON..THE GOOD THING IS YOU CAN CHANGE THIS RECEPI AROUND AS YOU LIKE AND IT'S STILL GOING TO BE GOOD! Read More

This is a great squash recipe- I did however change it up a bit- I added a little bit if salt and pepper some extra parmesean cheese and I didnt use the bread cubes. I used cracker crumbs instead. I made a full recipe thinking my husband and i would have leftovers but we ended up eating it all. Very rich and yummy. Read More

Mmm! My family all loved this one. Made my own changes. Sautéed garlic fresh mushrooms and onions. Added the cooked squash and a can of beef broth. Simmered till reduced and then thicken slightly with cornstarch/water. Added 1/2c sour cream. Poured in casserole dish. Topped with bread and parmesan. Baked as directed. This was a great recipe that will be a family regular in our home. Next time I will add spinach. Read More

Yum. An excellent way to prepare usually bland spaghetti squash. I did as another reviewer suggested and substituted spinach for the basil added nutmeg and used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. It was even better on the second day. Read More
