Really enjoyed this - the flavor is so good! The hubby branded it an 'instant classic'. Followed the recipe almost exactly (drained and rinsed the black beans which was not specified in the recipe. Glad we did.) Threw in the entire can (15 oz) of tomato sauce so we wouldn't be stuck with a half can. Also left out the seasoned salt completely after tasting it first - it didn't need it, it was plenty salty. Loved the sundried tomatoes in this even though I thought I would hate it, and I hate black beans but can barely notice it here. Also read a cool trick for spaghetti squash - cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, add half a cup of water and place the other half back on it. Microwave 12 minutes for a pound - if the top half is soft when it comes out, it's done. Otherwise, put it back in for a few more minutes.
I was pleased to find a recipe alternative to the traditional spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce! This mixture could be put on anything - tortillas, taco shells, rice, lettuce - which is a good thing, because the recipe makes way too much "topping" for one spaghetti squash!
A great alternative to pasta! Loved this recipe!
This was great. I added corn and used veggie crumbles in place of the meat and it was very hearty. we topped it with a bit of cheese and sour cream, and fresh diced tomoatoes. really good, but didn't seem to pair as well with the spaghetti squash as I would have hoped. it would make a fantastic chili with some added diced tomatoes and a bit of vegetable or chicken stock. would also make a delicious nachos topping.
I thought it was awesome! I was a little leary at first but the flavors and textures worked so well together! I will make again and probably soon!
