Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowls


Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowls |

These boats or bowls or whatever you want to call them, are so easy to put together.

Bonus: You don’t have to wash a bunch of dirty dishes after you are done because your bowl is the squash itself. How cool is that? I wouldn’t recommend eating the shell but it sure makes for easy cleanup!

I scoured the internet for something to comfort me that wasn’t too heavy during this cold winter. I found these Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowls on Closet Cooking.

I used my family recipe for Spaghetti Sauce for these bowls but you can use whatever sauce recipe you usually use or even a jar from the grocery store.

If you do opt to make your job easier and use the sauce in a jar, I’d add some Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano, and basil to enhance the flavor. I find if I add these ingredients, the jar sauce comes out ten times better.

All you do here is separate the squash from the shell after you bake it in a shallow baking dish with water and mix all of the ingredients into the spaghetti.

Don’t forget to top with cheese and herbs and throw it back into the broiler until the cheese gets melty and crispy.

I have been making this dish for the past three weeks, and my fiancรฉ loves it! I kept forgetting to buy fresh basil, so I substituted with dry basil. Still yields a delicious outcome. Thanks for the recipe!

I’ve never had spaghetti squash before. My mom had quite a few and gave me 2 of them. I’ve been searching for a good recipe to make with them. This looks and sounds amazing! How do you seed this and does spaghetti squash taste like a regular squash or does it have a distinct taste? Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Nikki! Yes! de-seed the squash like you would a pumpkin or an acorn squash. What’s left is the “meat” for a lack of a better word and it is just the spaghetti like noodles once you cook them and “fluff” or peel it away from the skin. I think that spaghetti squash tastes pretty different than other squashes. People use it a lot as a replacement for pasta in low carb dishes so its pretty reminiscent of actual spaghetti. Yet with a slightly different flavor/texture. But it is very pleasant! Let me know what you think when you cook them!
