Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash

A copycat attempt at twice stuffed potatoes. Or is it spaghetti in a bowl? Whatever it is, it was delicious and filling and very very easy to make. Many variations can be made on this one, you can use real meat instead of veggie ground round, you can use different cheeses and you can use fresh tomatoes instead of pizza sauce. Regardless of how you make it, its hearty and filling and good healthy comfort food! 



Makes 2 (*well 3) servings, 260 calories per serving

(*You will have leftover filling that you can also cook up and serve, it just won't have its own special "squash bowl")

Ingredients:

  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • Garlic Pizza Sauce - 1/2 cup
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • Yves Veggie Ground Round - 1/2 cup
  • Basil
  • Broccoli, 2 cups chopped
  • Red Pepper, 1 (chopped)
  • Zucchini, 2 cups (chopped)
  • Soy Cheese, 1/2 cup (Grated)
  • Low fat sour cream, 1 tbls

Directions: 

  • Cook spaghetti squash
  • Remove innards and mix with other ingredients
  • Re-stuff back into the squash
  • Put cheese on top
  • Cook in oven (usually 15-20 minutes)

Or follow through the pictures below: 


I precook my squash in the microwave for a minute or two so I can cut in half with my dull knives.

Scoop out the seeds and rind with a spoon.

Place face down in a large dish with some water in the bottom of the dish. Cook until the tops of the squash are "soft". Don't overcook as you need to keep the shells fairly firm for the re-stuffing process.

While the squash is cooling, mix all of your other ingredients in a bowl.

Scoop out the spaghetti squash, careful here as you want your "bowl" to remain intact and try to avoid making any holes.

Add the squash into your mixture

Mix all together and add seasonings or flavor here.

Place back in bowl and sprinkle with cheese.

As you can see, my innards made enough for 2 squash and a separate dish with the same serving size just not in the squash bowl.

I cooked at 350' for around 15 minutes. My cheese was a soy cheese so it didn't melt very well.
