    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    boats

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pierce the squash along one side in a straight line. Don't poke holes all over. You are using the skin as a casserole dish and it will leak if you poke it all over.
    2. 2
      Microwave the squash about 8-10 minutes, high heat. To softish stage so you can scrape the flesh out later.
    3. 3
      Remove from microwave. Using the pierce marks, cut the squash in half so you have two long 'boats.' Cool.
    4. 4
      Brown meat; add garlic, onion, s&p and peppers. Cook until tenderish. Add Italian spice mix and canned tomatoes. Simmer for a few minutes.
    5. 5
      If you are not using meat, sauté the veggies until tender, then continue adding spices and tomatoes.
    6. 6
      While it's simmering--spoon out the seedy portion of the squash and discard.
    7. 7
      Use a fork to scrape the spaghetti into strands. Put the strands into the sauce mix. Stir. Transfer back into boats, piling high! If you have too much, put the remainder into a greased dish.
    8. 8
      Place boats on an ovenproof pan with a lip so any juice will not drip onto oven.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle cheese of choice onto top. Bake, 350°F for about 45 minutes. Enjoy!
    10. 10
      You can of course use more or any veggies--add zucchini, mushrooms, etc. For a different flavor, add black olive slices, mix in 1/2 container of feta and sprinkle the remainder of feta on top. Or use parmesan on top.

      I've never cooked spaghetti squash before, but I saw it on TV and it looked interesting. This recipe was terrific, my mom, dad, brother, and boyfriend loved it - none of them had ever had it before either. I used a whole green bell pepper and added mushrooms as well. I think next time I'll add even more veggies, red peppers and whatnot. Super yummy, wouldn't change a thing. :D
