Gone boating

Spaghetti Squash Boats

One small squash serves two
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes

If you're looking for an easy and impressive looking meal to serve to guests, look no further! This is a great substitute for pasta. If you don't feel like getting fancy, skip the part where you melt cheese in the squash skin and just serve it. Enjoy :)

Your Shopping List:

  • 2 cups of your favourite pasta sauce (I make my own that has lots of veggies and either turkey or beef)
  • One small-ish spaghetti squash
  • a handful of grated cheese (I used Mozzarella)

What to do with it:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400
  2. Cut spaghetti squash length-wise and remove seeds (set them aside to roast later)
  3. Place squash cut-side down on a greased or lined baking sheet
  4. Bake in pre-heated oven for approximately 35-40 minutes
  5. When the squash is cooked, shred with a fork
  6. Mix shredded squash with your pasta sauce in a bowl then return it to the hollowed squash skins
  7. Top with cheese and bake the squash boats for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted
  8. Serve with a garden salad!
