Recipe: Spaghetti Squash Bake = YUMO!

Hello my little cupcakes! I have a recipe for you!! Let me tell you...I could eat this
with every meal of the day. Please don't be scared away by
the spaghetti squash. Give it a chance SERIOUSLY!

Spaghetti Squash Bake
1 Spaghetti squash (at least 1 lb)
1 red bell pepper
1 zucchini
1 medium onion
Shredded carrots
1 TB Olive oil 
2-8oz cans tomato sauce
Parmesan cheese
Mozzerella cheese

OK, this recipe is so great and versatile you can put as little or
as much of the ingredients as you like!
I don't really measure anything lol

1. Poke holes in your spaghetti squash and microwave for about 12 minutes.

2. Chop up your zucchini, red pepepr, onion, and garlic (as many cloves as you like!)

3. Toss the chopped veggies along with the shredded carrots into a skillet with oil

4. Cut squash in half and remove seeds. Use fork to flake out the flesh.

5. Mix cooked veggies and squash together with tomato sauce and a little Parm

6. Place in greased cooking dish. (I use a rectangle dish, smaller than 9x13 not sure the size)

7. Sprinkle as much or as little cheese on top as you wish!

8.I bake mine at 375 degrees for 30 minutes and it turns out beautiful, melty and bubbly!

I had put a chicken in the crockpot the night before so I had about 2 oz chicken with a little square of this

I didn't have time to do the calorie count on this I was in a huge hurry. Hopefully I will be able to update that sometime! :)


  1. Funny you should post this recipe. I bought a spaghetti squash last week, but I've been afraid of cooking it. I didn't know you could microwave it. that would make it soo much easier. May have to try this. Thanks!

  2. Looks yum. I am a fan of spaghetti squash, big! Love that you incorporated all those other good veggies, too.

  3. I love fall and squash time...yum yum

  4. I love spaghetti squash, too! I even love it just with parmesian cheese and that powdered butter stuff, or with marinara! mmmmmmmmmmmmm Now I want squash for dinner!!

    I went on a date night with hubs last week, (this is too rare I hate to say) and we went to a really nice restaurant, and they had this "fitness meal" option, and it was only 450 calories, and shockingly, it was DELICIOUS! I already forgot the name of the fish, darn it, it was similar to salmon, but it was on top of chunks of butternut squash and broccolini, with a breadcrumb crust on it and a drizzled sauce - to die for! Gosh, it's only 10am, I think I want lunch! lol

  5. I've nominated you for a Liebster Award. Come to my blog to get the details,

  6. What does a spaghetti squash look like?

  7. I just Pined this on Pinterest! I cannot wait to try it.

  8. I also love spaghetti squash..and other baked squashes (like acorn). However, I dislike zucchini...weird, huh? I'm definitely going to use this recipe soon, thanks!
