If you have never had spaghetti squash … don’t knock it until you try it. I love it. It is delicious if cooked properly and stuffed with the right stuffs. I made this dish recently and I plan on making this a again and again !! I didnt put specific amounts in this recipes because some people will want more or less and it wont matter how much you add πŸ™‚

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium spaghetti squash (or just 1 if serving just 2 people)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • your favorite marinara sauce
  • your favorite meatballs ( I make mine smaller for this dish )
  • Parmesan cheese
  • shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400*

  1. Cut squash in half. Be careful it has very tough skin. (microwave for 2 minutes if you are having a hard time )
  2. Scoop out all the seeds and pulp leaving a very thick wall.
  3. Rub inside and out with olive oil. (Just enough to coat dont go crazy or it will get soggy)
  4. Generously salt and pepper the squash
  5. Place on a cookie sheet face up in the oven for 45 minutes (this gives you time to make meatballs:) )
  6. When done remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. (You MUST let it cool! )
  7. Take a fork and scrap in all directions to make spaghetti (not too hard you want to leave a small amount of wall and not break the skin)
  8. Add a little parm , then meatballs, then some sauce, and then top with mozzarella cheese.
  9. Place back in the oven on broil until cheese is melted and browning.
  10. Remove from oven and omg enjoy !!!
