    Utokia this looks really good and sounds really easy. I’m not ordinarily a squash kind of girl but now that I’m eating healthy I’ve been trying lots of new foods. Can’t wait to give this one a try. Just bought spaghetti squash the other day. Don’t know what to do with it yet but I’m branching out. Thanks for the recipe.
