As written the recipe needs a little work but with some minor changes it is easily improved to 4-star status. First, don't assume 12 minutes in the microwave is accurate for your spaghetti squash! The recipe doesn't specify the size but given the 6-serving yield and fairly large amounts of the other ingredients, I'm assuming the submitter meant "1 LARGE spaghetti squash." If you use anything smaller, microwaving this for 12 minutes will be far too long and you will not obtain the desirable long strands. For ease in preparation and out of curiosity, this was the first time I cooked spaghetti squash in the microwave and I learned just how quickly it can overcook! I used sweet red bell pepper, rather than green, and with "primavera" in its title I didn't find feta cheese the best choice - I used fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano. Also in keeping with "primavera," and since I had them available, I used fresh herbs for the dried seasoning. Finally, it is not necessary to cook the onions separately, before adding the zucchini and peppers. I cooked all three together, but did not OVERcook, then added the garlic, the tomatoes and finally the fresh herbs. Again, if you use a modest-sized spaghetti squash, DO adjust not only the cooking time, but the amounts of the other ingredients, accordingly. (I didn't use nearly close to 1-1/2 cups of chopped tomato, for example)
