    Love this recipe! It freezes well too! My son ate my serving, begging for more, while he was waiting for his "unhealthy" food to cook! My husband asked if we were going to have this again this week! Thanks, I was never able to cook spaghetti squash right before! - 3/3/08

    Very good! I used the entire squash and whole container of ricotta cheese and made two pies. I thought we would freeze one, but my husband loved it so much he finished off an entire pie! I did drain the tomatoes and blotted squash with paper towel to asborb moisture so it wouldn't be runny. Yum! - 11/29/11

  • So good I barely notices that it didn't have grains in it. I ended up using a whole squash - 10/30/11

  • Really good, next time I make this I will make 2 pies and freeze one, so I don't have 1/2 a squash or 1/2 a container of ricotta. My husband loved it too, he didn't think healthy eating was so good. - 1/13/11

  • Used low fat/part skim ricotta and mozzarella to lower the fat grams per serving. Yummy - 11/21/10

  • VERY good! Aome adjustments that I made was that I used Shady Brook Farms Italian Ground Turkey instead of sausage. I also drained the squash (it was watery) and the canned basil/garlic tomatoes as well. The squashes in my area are small right now, so I had to use 2 small ones...OUTSTANDING recipe - 10/17/10

  • Easy and tasty. I added more veggies (peppers, shrooms) and spices (Italian seasoning, salt, pepper) to the turkey mixture. I also used 1/2 mild and 1/2 hot sausage. - 1/14/09

  • It was good. A little blan maybe i should of added salt/pepper? I will try using ground turkey next time or layer to make it cheesy? - 7/3/08

  • This was delicious! Taking advice from here, I drained the tomatoes and the squash (although I should have drained it even more because it was still a bit watery) I added basil, oregano and rosemary and used cheddar turkey sausage. I allowed flavors to meld some in the fridge before cooking. Yum! - 3/20/08

  • This was delicious! We used lean ground turkey and it worked fine. It was a little watery, but I think that is from the spaghetti squash. - 10/12/07

  • I really liked this recipe although I had a lot of "water" in the bottom when cutting into it. Don't know if it was just really moist squash or if I should've drained the tomatoes first. Still a very tasty dinner. I also used Italian Turkey Sausage and the whole spaghetti squash. - 10/9/07

  • This was excellent - it was like going out for Italian. It was so good it begged for a glass of wine - which I had and still stayed witin my calorie range!! Hubby loved it too! (added a bit of bail). - 6/6/07

  • This was outstanding! I do recommend using an entire spaghetti squahs rather than half. I also used turkey Italian sausage. I highly recommend this. I also cooked the squash in the microwave which cut down on the cooking time. - 4/13/07
