This dish is super easy to make but just a little time consuming due to cooking times but don’t let that scare you away. It makes a beautiful Sunday evening meatless meal, especially in the fall when the squash are in season and at their best. I was able to pick up a lovely lemon yellow spaghetti squash this weekend at my local market and the flesh was thick and very tasty. I also put aside some of the seeds to dry out so I can plant them in the spring. Considering that the meal is cooked and served in its own bowl clean up is a cinch.
