This is the very first time i have have ever cooked or eaten a SPAGHETTI SQUASH.!!
I want to let you know if you have naver tried it...please do!
It is delicious.
Even tho I put this cajun recipe together, it can also be eaten...with just salt & pepper and the added ingredient of butter (good ole butter) is all it needs!..YUMMY !
Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did.
