Previous attempts to produce a spaghetti-like texture were complete failures. Most often I would end up with a mushy mess.

Not in the least appealing.

As you can see, I have the hang of it now. My squash is tender, yet firm enough to pull apart into lovely strands.

To finish off our easy casserole recipe we tossed in spaghetti sauce, chunks of pre-cooked chicken sausage, kale, and chopped olives. It doesn’t get any easier to put dinner on the table.

    It’s been too long since I’ve cooked spaghetti squash, but you have convinced me to try again with this delicious looking recipe. Love the short list of ingredients too!

    Nice recipe. I’ve never cooked with spaghetti squash before, although I certainly know of its virtues. And I like the idea of having a “pasta” dish where the pasta is so healthy and flavorful. I like the flavors you’ve put together here – good stuff. Thanks.

    Yum! This looks awesome! I am a total kale freak. I keep hearing that people are sick of seeing kale this, kale that, but not me. I could look at recipes with kale in them all day/every day! :) I’m pretty new to spaghetti squash, but I’m a total fan. :)
