Loved it. Would make again, since it's always hard to get in 5 servings of veggies a day.

This recipe was great. I had never had spaghetti squash before and now I totally love it. I ate half of it for a main course. It had a great flavor and the veggies were really crisp and flavorful. I will definately make this again.
