Spaghetti Squash Bake with Mushrooms

Recipe adapted from www.andreaswellnessnotes.com

Ingredients (forgot to take a picture of all the ingredients together)

  • Spaghetti squash
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes*
  • 1 packaged mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • 3 Laughing Cow cheese wedges
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Cook the spaghetti squash. I attempted to try the microwave method this time (Prick holes in the squash and microwave for 12 minutes). Well, about 10 minutes in, it sounded like my microwave blew up and I opened the microwave to find this:

Well, I guess that made my job a little easier. Needless to say, I’ll be sticking to the baking method from now on, as previously posted.

2. Sauté the mushrooms in some olive oil and season them with a little salt and pepper.

4. Cut the spaghetti squash in half (or let your microwave do it for you), remove seeds, and use a fork to “make spaghetti”. Put a layer of the spaghetti squash in a greased casserole dish. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese.

A delicious, low-calorie, and filling side (or main) dish!

*I would probably only use 1 can of tomatoes next time, as there were a lot of tomatoes in every bite. I may also drain the liquid from the tomatoes a little bit, so there wouldn’t be as much as liquid in the dish.

    I always use microwave. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scrape out seeds. Place cut side down in baking dish. Add a little water. Start out at 10 minutes and add time as needed in microwave. No explosions so far!
