1 spaghetti squash
4 tomatoes, beefsteak or on the vine
1 pkg mozzarella cheese (shredded)
2 scallions

Bake the squash in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour on 350. It depends on how big it is.

Open the squash, and peel the insides (it shreds like spaghetti).

Blanche the tomatoes in boiling water, and remove skins.*

Cut up the tomatoes in cubes and add to the squash. Place in a 9 x 13 pan with a light coating of cooking spray. Sprinkle on scallions and mozzarella.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350.

*This was how the recipe was given to me although I have been known to substitute the fresh tomatoes for canned in a pinch.

Pairs Well With


It looks like spaghetti and even tastes like spaghetti. We had my nephew fooled when he was little. We just put some sauce on it, and he ate it!

This is great :) I never know what to do with the squash when it arrives in the shops and they look so pretty, so I always buy some and end up buying the same type year after year ... Look forward to try this out. I understand it with the canned tomatoes :) I tend to do so also :)
