    Rachel Rodrigue's Note:

    Having been recently diagnosed with insulin resistance, I often have difficulty finding low-carbohydrate meals I like. I heard a lot about spaghetti squash as a replacement for spaghetti and thought I would give it a try. This dish is excellent served with a fresh salad and a glass of red wine.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Fill a small baking dish with 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of water.
    3. 3
      Cut the spaghetti squash in half and place flat side down in the water. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, parsley, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. Use a garlic press to crush the garlic clove and add it to the mixture.
    5. 5
      When the squash is finished cooking, allow it to cool long enough to be handled. Use a fork or spoon to scrape the flesh of the cooked squash. Use long strokes lengthwise and the squash will come out looking much like spaghetti.
    6. 6
      Empty the water out of the baking dish and spray it with fat free cooking spray. Return the squash flesh to the baking dish.
    7. 7
      Combine the ricotta mixture with the squash and spread evenly in the baking dish.
    8. 8
      Spread the spaghetti sauce over the squash and ricotta mixture and spread the mozzarella cheese evenly over the top. Sprinkle more parsley flakes over the top to add color.
    9. 9
      Bake uncovered in the 350 oven for 30 minutes or until the mozzarella begins to bubble and turn brown.
    10. 10
      Allow the dish to cool for 5-10 minutes before eating.

      This is a great recipe. Since my husband is a meat guy, I added some turkey meatballs and he loved it.
