    This was fantastic! I have never had spaghetti squash, but I am impressed how great this meal is. The only thing I chnaged was I added fresh mushrooms, onion, and green pepper to the hamburger, and I used light mozzarella instead. Delicious!! :D - 9/30/09

    Try spreading the shredded spaghetti squash on paper towels to drain off juices. Also use a slotted spoon to scoop up the cottage cheese to allow juices to drain off.

    My family doesn't like cottage cheese so I substituted fat free ricotta for cottage. I also added frozen spinach to the ricotta - thaw, squeeze out excess liquid, mix with the ricotta and 1/4 cup egg beaters. This is great! This squash is a great alternative to pasta for a change. - 10/12/10

    I thought this was a great alternative to traditional lasagna. I made mine meatless and used low fat mozzarella, added garlic granules, italian seasoning, and pepper. I honestly didn't miss the meat but will have to add it in future meals, will definitely make again, thanks for sharing! - 6/24/09

    This recipe is awsome. My whole family loved it. I will be substituting spaghetti squash for pasta from now on! Thank you so much for sharing. Oh Yeah, I found a low carb pasta sauce at Publix and added italian sausage to my ground beef. Delicious! - 1/5/09
