    I made this without the oil to save calories and it was still delicious. I can't wait to make this again, because for only 175 calories this is my new favorite meal! - 10/22/09

    Very easy to make and tasty too! For those who haven't cooked squash before: don't forget to scoop out the seeds and "guts" before cooking in the oven. - 7/19/11

    This a great dish and what a way to up your veggie intake. My family loves it, even my picky 3y old. I added parmesean cheese instead of feta since that is what I had on hand. Love it! - 6/2/08

    Loved it! I too made the recipe w/o the oil. I didn't put in the black olives either (not crazy about black olives). I added cut up, cooked chicken. It was delicious! I will definitely make this again! - 4/12/12

    This was good but I must of had a big squash. There was not enough tomato for me so I added a can of diced tomatoes. I used fat free feta and added Garlic pepper,salt and garlic powder( I like garlic). I also put some parmesan on my serving. I think the fat free feta really cut back on the fat. - 2/3/11

  • When in a hurry, you can cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave on high for 10-12 minutes. Poke holes in it to release the steam though, or you could have a mess! - 3/22/14

  • My 4 year old and I absolutely LOVED this recipe! The only things I changed were to use 2 tbsp of EVOO instead of the vegetable oil, and I cooked the squash in the microwave. I'm very happy that it made a lot, I can't wait to have the leftovers! Definitely will make again! - 1/9/14

  • I liked this...I also didnt use the oil which turned out fine-just used a non-stick pan and some non-stick spray. And it seems almost like a cheat meal...its a big serving. :) - 1/18/13

  • Loved it & will make again! (I didn't have fresh basil so used the dried herb.) -- I also added some chopped turkey breast meat because I needed the extra protein. -- FYI I had never used spaghetti squash before. This was a GREAT introduction! - 9/29/12

  • I cooked my spaghetti squash in the microwave (1/4 cup of water in microwave safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap and cook 10-12 minutes). The recipe was good, but I will change up/play with some other seasonings next time. I also added a chopped spinach leaves which was nice in it. - 3/6/12
