    This dish was absolutely delicious. i cut back on the garlic to my taste, but otherwise left the recipe in tact. my husband was pleasantly surprised at the flavor and devoured it!! I will make it again for sure.

    Went the route of a casserole, cooked, shredded and drained the excess water from the spaghetti squash before blending everything together. Baked at 425 for 30 minutes. definitely up as my new favourite spaghetti squash recipe

    Way too much garlic and would have used heavy whipping cream instead of half and half as it was a bit too runny. Would have been nice to top with some breadcrumbs maybe.

    This was SO good! I’m no chef, but I felt confident making it! Great vegan option would be cashew cheese (I think that’s what it’s called... I’m not vegan myself.) but I loved it!

    Fantastic! I followed the roasting and microwave instructions. But instead of cheese sauce, I shredded some misc cheeses we had, added fresh thyme, basil, and parsley from our garden. By itself would be great! But I also cooked up and rinsed 1 lb lean ground beef, then added fresh onion, fresh minced garlic and more fresh herbs and some very wonderful tomatoes sauce. A++ for me - definitely will make again. My husband would rather have more "real noodle texture" but survived it and was satisfied. (Good- cuz he's eating it again!! 😉)

    I used some cooked ground beef in the mixture, along with fresh baby broccoli and grape tomatoes. Nix the half 'n half.
    It’s ok I’d actually use it as a pasta sauce or for ravioli next time

    Yummy way to do spaghetti squash without marinara. Will make again.

    I thought it was delicious but may have added to much garlic but I loved it. Kids not so much because too much garlic. More for me.

    garlic was too raw- when i try this again will saute it a smidge beforehand, otherwise it overpowers the taste of the squash

    This was a pretty good recipe but my ratio of squash to sauce mix was off (ended up on the wet side), so next time I need a bigger squash. Adding a bit more information on the size of the squash (approximate weight) would have useful. Otherwise, it tasted great, and I'll definitely make it again.

    pretty good. I used it and topped with spaghetti sauce. very cheesy tho, but that's probably because i don't measure anything@ lol

    very good and not too difficult. I would add red pepper flakes or a touch of cayenne to kick up the flavor a bit and maybe cappers and bacon to give it a little sour and salt, but a great starting base.

    Even the negative to squash said it was tasty
