Cheesy Spaghetti Squash Casserole


I love spaghetti squash. There I said it. I’m a squash lover. Acorn, zucchini, pattypan, delicata, butternut, carnival, and even sweet dumpling!
To be fair I like most vegetables. (Sorry eggplant, nothing personal.) I also try to make at least one vegetarian meal a week.

Spaghetti Squash Bake

  • 4 cups Spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato, canned diced with juice
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese shreds
  • 4 ounces Havarti or fresh Mozzarella
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning

1. Cut squash in half, remove seeds. Place halves in large Dutch oven and cover with water. Boil until you can easily pierce skin with a fork and squash can shred into strands.

2. While squash is cooking, combine tomatoes, peppers, vinegar and seasonings. Simmer about 5 minutes to blend flavors.

3. Remove squash and place skin side down on a plate. Run a fork vertically along the flesh to produce strands. Set aside.

4. Place 1/2 the squash in the bottom of a baking dish. Layer 1/2 the tomato mixture next. Sprinkle 1/2 of each cheese on top.

5. Repeat layers. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until cheese melts.

6. Enjoy with a salad or crusty bread!

  1. I love squash, too…but spaghetti squash is on the top of my list right now (I’m actually making some today)! This sounds delicious, I’m definitely saving it to try. I hope you’ll drop by and link it up to 12 Weeks of Winter Squash http://www.girlichef.com/2013/01/CreamyKabochaSoupWalnutsHoneyTruffleOil.html
