My hubby doesn’t care for regular spaghetti, spaghetti squash, or lasagna, so I was a bit sheepish about serving him this Italian Spaghetti Squash Bake. I had already had a bowl full and, thinking it was delicious, tried to convince him that it was a winner before he even tried it. If it wasn’t for the fact that he voluntarily helped himself to a second and third helping, I still might not know whether he actually enjoyed it or if he had just succumbed to positive peer pressure. 😉
I’m thrilled this main dish went over well. It doesn’t contain any special ingredients and is very budget friendly. Plus, it’s a family-sized recipe.
Trim Healthy Mamas can enjoy the Italian Spaghetti Squash Bake on its own as an S; if you’re at goal weight, or have a husband and children that would benefit from a Crossover meal, garlic bread made from sourdough or a sprouted loaf is a delicious side to this dish!
