Spaghetti Squash Primavera
I love Italian cuisine! I mean who doesn’t love combining meat, fresh vegetables, garlic, oil, and homemade tomato sauce? A ton of the dishes I make are Italian-inspired. This dish fulfills that delicious pasta craving, without the pasta! My version of “pasta” primavera is made with spaghetti squash and is the perfect combination of garlic, spices, meat, and vegetables!

I will be honest the ingredients seem out of order and the directions are confusing. I’m trying to make it right now and its not going well. I’m not a first time cook and I will need to write my own directions or just never make this again.
Spaghetti squash is already spaghetti format. Do I still need to roast it first?
