Spaghetti Squash Pasta

So I have always had great luck growing Spaghetti Squash, which means I need to find new and great tasting ways to eat them. I also try not to eat processed carbs, but miss all the great tastes of a carb filled recipe. So this recipe is wonderful, as it is just as good as eating a full pasta meal, without any of the processed carbs.

Spaghetti Squash Pasta
This will fill 1 medium Spaghetti Squash.

This is your recipe list:

  • 1 Medium to large squash

  • 1 Onion

  • 2 Cloves of garlic (make sure you grow your own Garlic!)

  • 1 Can of tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • Palm of parsley
  • Palm of oregano
  • Palm of basil
  • Palm of parmesan cheese
  • 2 Cups of Mozzarella cheese

Cut the Spaghetti Squash in half and scoop out the seeds in the center. Coat the inside of the squash with olive and a sprinkle of salt. Place in the oven, bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes while you prep the meat sauce.

In a saucepan (highly recommend a Paula Dean pan) cook 1 pound of ground beef. After drain the hamburger. Add 1 can of tomato sauce, all spices, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.

Take the squash out of the oven and drain any moisture.

Add the meat mixture into the squash and cover with Mozzarella Cheese. Bake for another 20 minutes.

Your squash should be soft and smell amazing when complete.

Cooking tips:

Check your squash.
Depending on the size of your squash it may need more or less time. Check your squash in your first bake and watch for browning. If it brown's it is ready to move to the next step.

Really big squash.
I have had some really large squashes from my garden. When cooking a large squash you may need to cook it a bit longer to ensure the core cooks all the way through.

Eating your squash.
Scoop and fork. The squash should be soft enough that it scoops out easily. But you may also need to run your fork down the sides to scrape out the strands of squash.
