Spaghetti Squash Pomodoro

I worked this recipe into our menu a couple weeks ago and it was rather tasty! Spaghetti squash is all over the place when Fall hits and I love eating it but I feel like I run out of ideas sometimes and there it sits on the counter for ump-teen weeks!

I took a simple Pomodoro recipe from the @tasty app and added some ground beef to make it a well-rounded meal for us. Bonus –> it’s toddler approved!
