Alright, so as promised in my last blog post. here is a recipe for the Stuffed Spaghetti Squash.

Spaghetti squash is a great vessel and can be filled with almost anything. My girlfriend Leslie, introduced me to stuffed squash, filling it with meatloaf ingredients. We usually baked it in the oven but I currently don’t have access to a kitchen right now so I thought I’d try it on the barbeque.

It turned out great! Next time I’ll play around a little more with various flavors and ingredients. Feel free to play with my recipe and adapt it to your palette.
