This is the classic spaghetti but with squash instead of noodles. This is the classic spaghetti but with squash instead of noodles.
Number of Servings: 3


    1 jar of Classico Fire Roasted Tomato & Garlic pasta sauce.
    1 spaghetti squash
    .5 onion
    half pound of lean ground beef


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut squash lengthwise. Remove seeds. Place squash face down in a roasting pan with about .5 inch of water. Roast in oven for 30-45 minutes (until tender and mushy to touch shell side up.)

While squash is roasting, brown ground beef adding onions part way through.

Once the beef is thoroughly ground, add the jar of sauce. Add any other seasonings desired. (Potentially chopped garlic and/or basil.) Stir thoroughly.

Cover and allow to continue simmering while squash finishes cooking.

Once squash is done, remove from oven and carefully (squash will be hot) run a fork tines length-wise down the squash over plate or bowl - this will remove the "noodles" from the squash.

Serve as you would normally serve spaghetti.

Squash yield is approximate and depends on the size of the squash. Also, sizes can be smaller or larger - this is about right for our family of three.

Number of Servings: 3

    I do this also. Another thing I do with spaghetti squash is to add 2 tbsp of Pesto. It's very simple and extremely tasty. - 9/12/09
