Spaghetti Squash and Meat Sauce

Introduction

I never had spaghetti squash, so I was dying to try it! This is really good and I am impressed. You must try it!! I am shocked on how good spaghetti squash is. This is also great way to use up your fresh tomatoes from your garden. I never had spaghetti squash, so I was dying to try it! This is really good and I am impressed. You must try it!!

Ingredients

    1 Spaghetti Squash - pricked with a skewer
    1/2 lbs. of pound of lean ground beef.
    1/3 cup Onion - diced
    1 clove of Garlic - chopped small or minced
    1 large or two small Bell Pepper - diced
    1 Zucchini - diced
    1 large Tomato - diced
    1/2 Tbsp. of Olive Oil
    1 can of Tomato Sauce
    Basil - 10 leafs sliced thin
    1/2 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning
    Parmesan Cheese to taste (optional)


Directions

Preheat oven to 375.

Prick the Squash several times with a skewer or knife. Place on a baking dish and bake for 1 hour.

Once squash is done, set a side till it cools. Once cool enough to handle, cut in half and scrape out the seeds and pulp. With a fork, scrape the squash into strands. Place on plate and top with pasta.

Meanwhile, you can start your pasta sauce.

In a large sauce pan add your garlic and ground beef cook until lightly brown. Add onion, peppers, zucchini, Italian Seasoning, and 5 of your basil leafs, tomatoes, and Olive oil and cook until tender. At this point I decided I wanted sauce sauce so I added 1 can of Hunts Tomato Sauce. Cook until warmed and veggies are all tender. Add remaining basil..

Serve over Spaghetti Squash or Pasta and top with cheese.

Note: You may have left over squash

Serving Size: 3 Large plates with left over squash

Number of Servings: 3
