Spaghetti squash is my new favorite fun food. I never knew that there was a vegetable that was so much like pasta! This recipe won a Taste of Home competition and I can taste why! This simple vegetarian sauce is a great topper for the squash "This fabulous, meatless main dish is a great way to get the kids to eat lots of vegetables … and a great way for you to use some of the fresh harvest from your garden. — Kathryn Pehl, Prescott, Ariz."
