Italian spaghetti squash boats

Here is my way to satisfy my pasta cravings with a healthier version using spaghetti squash


  • 1 Spaghetti squash
  • 3-4 Cups Marianara sauce
  • 4-6 Oz's Fresh mozzarella
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesen cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and rub inside with olive oil and salt and pepper liberally. Place on sheet pan cut side down
  • Roast in oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 mins. You will know it's ready when you can poke a fork through skin easily.
  • Remove from oven and let cool. 
  • Using a fork, pull flesh from shell. It should look like spaghetti. Place is bowl and drain excess liquid. Place the "spaghetti" back in shells
  • Top with marianara sauce (optional - turkey meatballs, chicken sausage, ground turkey) 
  • Slice and top with fresh mozzarella and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper.
  • Place back in oven under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and top with fresh oregano or/and basil garnish. Serve and enjoy.
