Spaghetti Squash with Italian Flare

When I go to a restaurant and have a delicious dish I try to recreate it at home. The first time I had this dish was back home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at Cork and Fork. While eating my mom and I were naming all of the ingredients we tasted so that we could figure out how to make it on our own. This is a simple dish that packs a powerful punch. It can be a great side dish or you can add in your favorite protein.
