Ingredients

  • 6 meatballs - precooked
  • 1 medium to large spaghetti squash
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese freshly shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
    Soften the spaghetti squash by carefully poking it several times with a knife and microwaving it for approximately 4 minutes. Once it is cool enough to handle, remove it from the microwave and cut it in half. Remove any seeds inside.
  • Place the squash pieces, cut side down, on an oiled pan. Bake for approximately 30 - 45 minutes, or until the squash is soft enough to scrape into "spaghetti" strands.
    Once it is soft, use a fork to scrape the strands off of the side of the squash, but leave them inside the squash like a bowl.
  • For each cut side of the squash: top the newly made spaghetti strands with marinara, meatballs, and cheese. Bake at 425° F for 20 minutes.
  • Turn the oven to broil, and broil until the cheese just starts to brown.
