Great for those days you crave Mac n Cheese! Original recipe found in Kraft's, my version uses the Spaghetti Squash. Great for those days you crave Mac n Cheese! Original recipe found in Kraft's, my version uses the Spaghetti Squash.
Number of Servings: 10


    1 Lrg. Spaghetti Squash, 3 lbs recommended

    2 Tbs Parmesan cheese

    1/2 c. Shredded Mozzarella

    1 c finely chopped plum tomatos or petite diced canned.

    1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley or dried works also.


Pierce squash several time to vent. Microware on High 10 min. or until soft, turning over after 5 min. Remove from Microwave & let stand 5 min. or so before opening- beware! it will be extremely HOT!

Cut squash in half long wise, remove & discard seed- qrapefruti spoon works great! Using a fork, scrape insides to remove strands of 'spaghetti'. Careful not to dig too deep as you will be using the shell.
Place the 'spaghetti' into a bowl with your remaining ingredients: toss lightly & cutting strands if need with a knife. Spoon ingredients back into the shell & Microwave again on HIGH for 2 or so min. or until heated through & cheese is melted.
Ingredients will keep up to 2 days 'outside' of the shell in refrigerator- if any left overs remain. And it tastes just as good re-heated on High 3-5 min.

I've also used other cheeses for this including Cheddar & Velveeta! Vary your extras- such as bacon bits or chopped ham instead of the tomatos.

    Sounds like I'll have 2 try your additions! I have trouble finding flavored salts though.

  • My squash was around 2 pounds, I used a whole 14oz can of diced tomatoes w/basil & oregano. While the squash was cooling, I sliced and browned Butterball Smoked Turkey Sausage and added it with the cheese-tomato mixture. He said it was the best spaghetti squash he has ever had! - 7/14/11
