Cheesy Spaghetti Squash Recipe

One of my favorite healthy meals for fall is cheesy spaghetti squash.  It is fast, cheap and super easy to make.  You don’t have to be a big squash fan to enjoy it.  The marinara sauce and cheese make it taste like a differently textured pasta.


one spaghetti squash

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup marinara sauce


Pierce the squash at least five times, then cook it in the microwave on high for 12 minutes, rolling it over a turn every three minutes.

Remove from microwave, cut off the ends and cut it in half.  Scoop out the seeds, just like you would with a pumpkin.  The halves should look like this when you are done:spaghetti squash

Scrape the strands from both halves into a bowl, using a fork.  Top with cheeses and marinara sauce and toss.  Return to squash halves.
