Spaghetti Squash Casserole (South Beach Diet P1)

I got this from another website and everyone in my family liked it. I thought it was delicious and very filling. I use the "Mexican style" type diced tomatoes. For a different taste, use Parmesan or low fat cheddar on top.

Directions

  1. Pierce the squash in several places, put on a plate and microwave until tender (mine took about 20 minutes).
  2. Allow cool while you cook the meat and veggie mixture.
  3. Brown meat with garlic, onion, salt and pepper, and bell pepper.
  4. Drain and add Italian spice and tomatoes.
  5. If it seems really liquidy, cook some of the liquid off.
  6. Cut the squash in half and scrape out the seeds and discard them.
  7. Use a fork to scrape the spaghetti into strands and mix gently with sauce mix.
  8. Transfer to a large casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  9. Bake uncovered for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
  10. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake 10-15 minutes more.

I love using spaghetti squash as a healthy and point friendly alternative to pasta and was instantly drawn to this one. I did an Italian styled version for 2 people and used a mix of lean ground turkey and Italian sausage seasoned veggie crumbles. Topped with a mix of reduced fat feta and mozzarella, it was a perfect comfort meal that was healthy to boot.

I really enjoyed this dish. Used ground beef instead of turkey. Good with any cheese as topping. Thanks. Will make again.
