The first time we had sweet spaghetti squash was at Windmill Point, in Nags Head, NC. That was many many years ago. We have been looking for a recipe that was somewhere close since. This isn't it, but it's pretty darn good. The apple helps sweeten things and the little sprinkle of course sea salt on top should be more of a after taste. Hope you find this as fantastic as we did.
