“Pasta” 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-dish 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!
