Fantastic! I did not change a thing and this recipe was perfect. I cut the squash in half lengthwise, scooped out the seeds, then microwaved cut side down in 1/4 inch of water in a casserole dish for 13 minutes. It turned out just right in less than half the time.

This is really tasty. I did have to change a few things because of my diet. Used Ground Turkey, Cabot 50% light cheddar cheese from Sam's (melts good), and I cut the squash in half, covered with plastic wrap and baked 10 min in microwave. (faster than oven)

This recipe is awesome!! My brother in law loved it and he doesn't eat veggies. I doubled the meat because that's what my husband likes, the extra lb was hot italian sausage. I used italian seasoning instead of the individual ones , ended up using 1 1/2 cans of tomatoes because of the added meat and doubled the cheese. YUM!!! I can't wait for a party so I can suprise everyone with this dish! Original recipe would have been perfect too, just changed it for my family's tastes. Thanks!!
