I love spaghetti squash. It can be so versatile- try this recipe and tell me you love it! This sweet and savory and full of cinnamon, brown sugar and cheese and butter, and honey and Italian seasoning- again what's not to like!!!
It's quick and easy in the microwave too!
10 minutes in the microwave or 50 minutes in the oven- you choose.
