If you crave pasta but want to try something a little different, I highly recommend giving spaghetti squash a try!!
Preheat the oven to 350°
1.Carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise.
2.Remove the seeds and loose stringy “flesh”.
3.Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4.In a roasting pan, place the squash face down.
5.With a fork, make several holes on the skin of the squash. (about 5 sets of fork holes).
6. In a large sauce pan, brown your ground meat. When it is fully cooked, add it to your sauce.
**I have also roasted them in a pan with 2 cups of water and have the squash face up- no fork marks required).
6.Place in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
The squash is ready when you can EASILY scrape the squash with a fork. If it doesn’t, place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until it does.
We LOVE to eat our squash topped with this delicious meat sauce and often add diced tomatoes into the sauce as well!
Top with your choice of cheese and ENJOY!
