S'ghetti Squash Bake

If you follow this blog's Facebook page, you will know I made dinner last night using spaghetti squash and y'all wanted to know the recipe. And if you're not following my Facebook blog page...for shame! Here it is, The 218 lb Elephant, now go "like" and spread the love!

Here is the recipe blog as promised!

This is totally hubby approved. Brent even went back and got a seconds! I asked if we need to work this into our dinner rotation. His responded with a hell yeah! LOL!

I've never written a recipe blog so this should be interesting!

Preheat the oven to 375.

Cut 1-2 whole spaghetti squashes lengthwise. (For a family of two I should've just used one because we still have enough for another dish.)
Scrap out the seeds and membrane. (It looks like a pumpkin inside.)

Line a cookie baking tray with aluminum foil.
Place the spaghetti squash halves on cookie sheet, with the insides facing up.
Salt, pepper, and olive oil to taste. (I used  just something like Pam.)

Place in oven for 45-60 minutes or until the squash is tender. (It took about an hour for 2 squashes.)

Once cooked completely.
Pull out the squash and let it cook for a few minutes. (I let it cool for about 20 minutes or so.)
Grab a fork a scrap the inside into a bowl or frying pan. (I prepped my "noodles" in the morning, so I put them in a bowl and covered them.)

S'ghetti Bake Prep:
Preheat or turn down oven to 350

Place "noodles" in a frying pan.
Sprinkle basil, oregano, garlic powder, and a tablespoon of olive oil over the "noodles".
Cook until consistency you like your regular noodles to be. (We like our regular noodles soft so I cooked them for maybe 10 minutes.)

In another pan brown up some ground beef, turkey breast, or chicken breast. Depending on your taste.

Back to the "noodle" pan.
Once the "noodles" are how you like them.
Add spaghetti sauce and other spaghetti ingredients you like. (I added just mushrooms)
Stir all the ingredients together, add your meat, and place in a glass pan to bake it. (I just used a Pyrex pie one.)

Top with favorite cheese. (We used parmesan and shredded cheddar.)
Place in oven and pull out when the cheese is all melty and gooey!

Serve it up and enjoy!
We paired ours with cheesy garlic bread from the store.

Bon Appetit!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Let me know what you think and if these types of blogs are something y'all are interested in, and if so I'll add them into the rotation?
