Saw a version of this recipe on the boards and decided to try it..

I changed some of the details of the original recipe to make it fit the L&G requirements..

Spaghetti Squash Casserole:.

4c cooked spaghetti squash.

8oz low-moisture part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese.

2c sugar-free salt-free tomato puree (canned): or make home-made.

12oz cooked 95-97% fat-free ground beef.

2 healthy fats (2tsp of olive oil added to the sauce, for example).

To cook squash:.

With a knife, cut a big X on the front and back sides of a spaghetti squash.

Microwave until soft to the touch (about 10 mins).

Open, scrape out the seeds, then scrape out 4c of the cooked squash with a spoon..

To prepare:.

Put 4c of spaghetti squash on the bottom of a casserole dish.

Add 4oz of the cheese.

Layer on the 12oz of ground beef.

Pour the sauce evenly on top of everything.

Layer the rest of the cheese on top.

Cook at 475 until the cheese is brown (about 30mins).

**It's a little watery at first- let it cool off so the sauce can thicken a bit before you eat it..

Makes excellent leftovers- better than right out of the oven**.

Add your 3 condiments and enjoy!.

Makes 4 servings.

Each serving contains 1 lean, 3 greens, and .5 healthy fats (the required amount)..

It sounds delish! I have recently discovered Spaghetti Squash. I don't eat meat though, ever try it without it?..

I posted this recipe on my blog a while ago and madammermaid tried it out. She did a version with veggie crumbles and said it was delicious. Or hey, more cheese never hurt lol you'd just double the amount of cheese the recipe calls for and that should take care of your lean requirements..

Here's how this recipe breaks down per serving:.

You get 2 greens from the squash, 1 green from the tomato.

1/2 lean from the meat (and you need 1/2 of a fat serving for that).

And 1/2 lean from the cheese (no fat required).

If you change the meat part then just adjust the fat serving as needed...

Yes! The morningstar farms crumbles were divine! I pan cooked them a bit until they were defrosted and added various Italian seasonings. I am so thankful she came up with this delicious recipe. I made it when we had company over and I got raves! Definitely doesn't taste like a "diet" recipe...

Carise ~ I just want to thank you, thank you, thank you for this recipe! It was so satisfying and delish last night for my L and G..

It is definitely one of, if not my favorite recipe, to date!.

I used 1/2tsp Mrs. Dash Italian Seasonings, 1/4tsp Garlic Powder and 1T Onion per serving as my condiments and just mixed them in as I was cooking. (in case anyone who reads this is wondering...).

THanks again!!..
