This is the first time I have used spaghetti squash. I had never realized such an amazing vegetable existed. Being introduced to this squash by one of my chef mentors from college, I wanted to try complementing this dish with a sauce recipe of my own. I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as my family did.
