    *You may use Italian seasoning instead.

Directions

saute onions and garlic until translucent. Add fresh meat or veggie/soy crumbles (or omit for vegitarian fare) and brown. Drain fat.

Add herbs and mix. Add undrained diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and bay leaves.

Bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Cut squash lengthwise, scrape out and discard seeds. Poke fork wholes into skin. Add about 1/4 cup water at bottom of microwaveable dish and put squash halves in dish flesh-side up. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Put in microwave and cook on high for about 8-10 minutes. With fork, scrape out squash strands.

Plate squash and scoop spaghetti sauce on top.

Enjoy.
