Goodbye Last Spaghetti Squash of Summer '08

I finally used the last spaghetti squash that we wintered over in the basement - so sad!

It was a delicious meal though and a great way to use the sqaush for a nice light summer meal.

This recipe comes from Cooking Light and can be found on their website here.

We omitted peppers, of course and otherwise stuck to everything as is. Delicious, easy, light and a great summer meal or even great to make as a big batch and take for lunches!
