That recipe sounds good, but I'm no good at recipes that require baking, stirring, baking again, simmering this... I'm a one pot girl. Haha.

Is spaghetti squash really good? Would my family freak out if I tried to serve it? Because I couldn't get them to eat whole wheat noodles, so I don't know how much luck I'd have with squash noodles!
