    good info on how to cook squash, but calories are figured wrong, spaghetti squash has 41.9 calories a cup and this recipe is giving calories for 1/5 cup. - 10/12/11

    I make this and once it's done, I add garlic powder and Italian flaked seasons, along with salt and some spray on margarine. It's really good, and lo-cal. I've also reheated it with some grated parmesan cheese and that makes it even better. - 3/3/14

    This was good but I would have loved to have my squash cooked some more. It was too al dente for me. - 3/22/12
