  2. Sauté the minced garlic in the 2 teaspoons Olive Oil until it's softened and fragrant.
  3. Add the tomatoes, basil, and oregano to the garlic and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.

Miss Em, Yuck "this would taste great if it was real spaghetti and you got rid of the squash!"

Conclusion this recipe is appropriate for a one year old. If I make it again, use real pasta, blend squash, toss pasta with squash and top with tomato mixture!

Side note, hoping next week I pick a winner of a recipe. Usually I have better luck with my family then this.

Oh and we did try a new recipe today that was a huge hit in the house. It's for pumpkin chocolate chip bread.
