Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

1 small spaghetti squash (1-1 ½ lbs)

1/2 cup water

3/4 lb ground beef

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper

1 garlic clove, minced

1 cup canned diced tomatoes

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 cup shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Place with cut side down in a baking dish; add water. Cover and bake at 375° for 20-30 minutes or until it is easily pierced with a fork. When cool enough to handle, scoop out squash, separating the strands with a fork.
  2.  In a skillet, cook beef, onion, red pepper and garlic until meat is browned and the vegetables are tender.
  3. Drain; add tomatoes, oregano, salt, pepper and squash. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  4. Transfer to a medium sized baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese and parsley; let stand a few minutes, serve.
