  • Very good! perfect spices, full of flavor. Just to reduce some fat (b/c I am never short of it) I am going to reduce the EVOO next time. GREAT RECIPE!! Even My Hubby will now eat spaghetti squash!! - 2/21/14

  • Whoops, I didn't mean this "bad" rating; it was an accident. I would give it 3 or 4 stars. I put it in a casserole with some mozzarella cheese on top and baked it for a while. I ended up draining off the chicken broth since it made it quite runny. - 10/23/13

  • Didn't taste exactly how I was expecting but still very good. Reminded me of a chicken and rice dish. - 11/1/12

  • I love Olive Garden's Chicken Scampi, too, so this recipe caught my eye. I have been looking for a way to try spaghetti squash, as I love pasta but want to stay away from the carbs. This recipe was really tasty. It all melds together so well, I never missed the pasta! My husband loved it too! - 1/22/12

  • I might make this again. It was good, but not great. Very filling and healthy though, I like that! This was the first time I have ever cooked spaghetti squash, so I still have lots of experimenting to do. I think next time I may add some other veggies (mushrooms) and probably more garlic. - 4/9/08
