These spaghetti squash boats rock the house! My kids loved them! My hubby loved them! I loved them!!! 🙂 And my daughter even stole my leftovers to take in her lunch!
My kids are much better eaters than I was at their age. I was super picky….Sorry, Mom! I turned my nose up to just about everything!
I am much better as an adult. The only thing I would touch in this dish as a kid would have been the tomatoes and the cheese….these days I love the entire dish! See, things do get better as we age!
These spaghetti squash boats can be a meal in themselves or served as a side dish.
Spaghetti Squash is pretty versatile. Another one of our favorite ways to eat this squash is Baked Alfredo Spaghetti Squash.
