OK to sub regular breadcrumbs if you are not gluten free. Make sure they are nut free if you are allergic.
If you do not have pork panko you can use breadcrumbs instead.
Option for vegan parmesan cheese, dairy free parmesan cheese, almond parmesan cheese.
Option for vegan mezzerella cheese, almond mezzerella cheese or fat free mezzerella cheese.
If you do not prefer spaghetti squash you can serve over gluten-free pasta, lentil pasta, brown rice pasta, etc.
