Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowls

It’s cold up in New York. Another deep freeze is impending!

These boats or bowls or whatever you want to call them, are so easy to put together. Bonus: You don’t have to wash a bunch of dirty dishes after you are done because your bowl is edible. How cool is that. I wouldn’t recommend eating the shell but it sure makes for easy clean up!

I scoured the internet for something to comfort me that wasn’t too heavy during these cold winter days and nights. I found these Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowls on Closet Cooking.

I used my family recipe for Spaghetti Sauce for these bowls but you can use whatever sauce recipe you usually use or even a jar from the grocery store. If you do opt to make your job easier and use sauce in a jar, I’d add some Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano, and basil to enhance the flavor. I find if I add these ingredients, the jar sauce comes out ten times better.

All you do here is separate the squash from the shell after you bake it in a shallow baking dish with water and mix all of the ingredients into the spaghetti. Top with cheese and herbs and throw it back into the  broiler until the cheese gets melty and crispy.
