Spaghetti Squash Recipe

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup ricotta
1 beaten egg
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
2 cups tomato sauce
garlic powder, oregano, basil, parsley
1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix squash, 1 egg and Parmesan. Press evenly into 9″ pie plate.
Mix ricotta and other egg and spread over squash mixture. In skillet, brown ground beef with onion and green pepper. Drain excess fat. Add tomato sauce and spices and simmer for few minutes. Spoon over ricotta mixture in pie plate. Bake approx. 15 min. Sprinkle with mozzarella and make 10 min. more to brown cheese. Remove from oven and let sit 5-10 min before cutting.
Don’t get turned off by the list of ingredients! This is really easy. I cooked this meal on the weekend and put it in the fridge in a container. I always have some browned ground beef in the freezer, so this didn’t take much time to assemble. (To cook spaghetti squash, pierce with fork, then put in the microwave for 15 min. Let cool a little, cut in half, scoop out seeds and run fork over the squash – it will separate into spaghetti type strands).
