    This was fantastic! I have never had spaghetti squash, but I am impressed how great this meal is. The only thing I chnaged was I added fresh mushrooms, onion, and green pepper to the hamburger, and I used light mozzarella instead. Delicious!! :D - 9/30/09

    Try spreading the shredded spaghetti squash on paper towels to drain off juices. Also use a slotted spoon to scoop up the cottage cheese to allow juices to drain off.

    My family doesn't like cottage cheese so I substituted fat free ricotta for cottage. I also added frozen spinach to the ricotta - thaw, squeeze out excess liquid, mix with the ricotta and 1/4 cup egg beaters. This is great! This squash is a great alternative to pasta for a change. - 10/12/10

    I found the cottage cheese kind of icky and unfortuently i think there needs to be a step in the instructions for straining the spaghetti squash there was a lot of liquid in the bottom of my lasagna. if i tried again i would definitly use fat free ricotta instead. - 10/27/09

    I thought this was a great alternative to traditional lasagna. I made mine meatless and used low fat mozzarella, added garlic granules, italian seasoning, and pepper. I honestly didn't miss the meat but will have to add it in future meals, will definitely make again, thanks for sharing! - 6/24/09

    This recipe is awsome. My whole family loved it. I will be substituting spaghetti squash for pasta from now on! Thank you so much for sharing. Oh Yeah, I found a low carb pasta sauce at Publix and added italian sausage to my ground beef. Delicious! - 1/5/09

    This was a great recipe! Just a couple of suggestions - I cook spaghetti squash by cutting it length wise and placing in a shallow pan with a couple inches of water (enough to steam). Also, I sauteed spinach and added it to ricotta cheese. It was a big hit in my house and I will make again! - 8/22/11

    Awesome recipe. I modified it somewhat. I used ground chicken and seasoned it while it cooked. I also added some seasoning to the spaghetti squash and cottage cheese and made my own tomato sauce. The spaghetti squash is a great substitute for pasta...yum! - 1/8/09

  • This was really yummy, but I would suggest squeezing out the water from the squash. My casserole had more liquid than what I liked. Still good though! I will definitely make it again. :) - 9/3/12

  • I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! I never knew eating healthy could taste so good and I didn't even miss the pasta. I drained the squash on a paper towel for a while and also drained the cottage cheese in a coffee filter for at least an hour. Used Mexican 4 cheese blend, this was amazing! - 6/21/12

  • Used low fat ricotta and a mix of low fat mozarella, asiago and parmesan vs cheddar. Next time would use veal instead of hamburger but boy we sure liked the idea of this one just as it was! - 11/16/10
