    I made this and it was good but not great. My husband thought it was just average. I made it exactly as written.

    This is just a question – since it is just my husband and I, would it work to make this up and freeze half and cook half?

    That’s a good idea, Daniel. I want to try this one! Looks yummy.

    Rather than a review, I have a question.
    Instead of going through all the trouble to make a space for the Spaghetti Squash to sit down in there, why not just make that the first thing you put in?
