    I love the flavor of homemade spagetti sauce. This is a great recipe. I added spinach, black olives and fresh chopped garlic. Makes a lot of food. - 3/14/10

    I only have yellow squash (coming out my ears!), so I am going to try this recipe today and substitute the squash. It sounds good and I may add some Vidalia onions. - 7/26/09

    Very Good
    I have never had spaghetti squash and this was really, really good! I added a onion, a dash of salt and didn't use the pepper (I just don't care for it). It was SO filling and delish! - 2/19/11

    Thanks for the idea...loved it! I used 2/3 cup of mushroom alfredo sauce in lieu of the spaghetti sauce and 1/2 of the squash plus I added half a yellow bell pepper. Very delicious! - 9/22/10
