Creamy Spaghetti Squash Casserole

"The original recipe was from Detoxinista which changes to suit my personal preference. When I was young I loved creamy casserole dishes. My mom made the most delicious tuna casserole with elbow pasta, cream of mushroom soup, green beans, tuna and LOTS of cheese -- Midwest comfort food at it's finest, but not healthy in the least. This recipe is so yummy! It is a great way to sneak veggies into a picky child or spouse's diet. It tastes way to good to be healthy...or so they'll think."

1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • First, cut your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scrape away the seeds. Drizzle with a little sea salt and fresh cracked pepper and place down on a lined baking sheet and cook for about 45 minutes.
  • While the squash is baking, prepare your filling. In a medium skillet over med-high heat add a small pat of butter, minced garlic, diced onion, a pinch of sea salt, and pepper and cook for several minutes until soft.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the cooked onions and garlic with greek yogurt, 1 oz of shredded goat cheddar, parsley, nutmeg, sea salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove squash from the oven and let cool. When your squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape out the inside which will come apart in strands. Place spaghetti squash strands in your mixing bowl and combine all ingredients together. Place your mixture in a large baking dish and top with the remaining 3 oz of shredded goat cheddar. Place bak in the oven at 400° and let cook for about 15 minutes. Then set the oven to broil and cook until the top has formed a delicious golden crust.
  • Serve immediately and prepare to be blown away at how delicious this healthy dish is.

<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan.

I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours.
