Satisfy cravings for Italian foods with spaghetti squash, raw cheese, delicious herbs, and tomatoes.


    1/2 c. white mushrooms

    1/2 c. tomato

    1/4 c. onion

    1/4 c. green bell pepper

    1 c. tomato sauce

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

    Italian seasoning to taste

    1/2 lrg. spaghetti squash

    1 lbs. ground beef

    4 oz. parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cook the squash while you get started with the sauce, so it will be hot when you assemble the dish. Shred the cheese if needed and set aside.

Sauté chopped vegetables and mushrooms in the olive oil. Add the meat to the vegetables and cook thoroughly. Add the seasonings to taste.

Remove seeds from squash. Then scrape out the "spaghetti" strands and layer them on the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish. Cover the squash with the meat and vegetables. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake for about 15 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is melted.
