    Are you kidding me? I was excited by the pictures of your dish, but when I scrolled down to view the recipe. almost everything comes from a jar, pre-made. Won’t be trying this one.

      It’s no joke Linda! That’s how we roll, but you are always welcome to substitute the ready-made items with homemade. Plan on about at least an hour for homemade meatballs and 1 1/2 – 3 1/2 hours for spaghetti sauce made from scratch. The good things is that once you make the homemade meatballs and spaghetti sauce you can freeze the leftovers for future meals. Best of luck! ~Tonia

    It seems to be hit or miss at the stores near my house with spaghetti squash. Sometimes they have it, sometimes they don’t. When I see it again, I’ll have to pick one up so I can make this. LOVE this idea, Tonia!
