  • I LOVE spaghetti squash so much! (And so does my picky-eater husband). So I definitely can't wait to try this!! πŸ™‚

  • OMG! I'm loving this and WILL be making this TONIGHT! Just last week I bought Winn Dixie out of their acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash due to their .99 a lb sale (still going on, I think). We love squash all different types of ways (I've got an awesome Roasted Butternut Parmesan Spaghetti on the blog) and love quinoa! Thanks for sharing! DELISH!

  • Love that there's quinoa in these meatballs!

  • Spaghetti squash is such an easy and affordable dish. Not to mention SO good! My dad was apprehensive at first, but ended up loving it. I'm definitely going to try the quinoa meatballs!

  • Umm YUM! That looks delicious and not even that hard to make!

  • Ok, I have always been totally intimidated by your two ingredients, but I think I need to shut up and ease into spaghetti squash AND quinoa now!
