  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place squash on a baking sheet, and bake 40 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat, cool, and shred pulp with a fork.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a casserole dish.
  4. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until evenly brown. Drain, and mix in the green pepper, red pepper, red onion, and garlic. Continue to cook and stir until vegetables are tender.
  5. Mix the shredded squash and tomatoes into the skillet, and season with oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through. Remove skillet from heat, and mix in 2 cups cheese until melted. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish.
  6. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, and continue baking 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use bulk sausage in place of the ground beef, if you prefer.

Very good base recipe, if a little bland - it needs a little tweaking to be truly delicious. Next time I'll increase the onion and all the seasonings, add a little cayenne pepper for zing, and ...

This dish is delicious! If no one told you that the "noodles" were squash, you would swear it was pasta. It doesn't have that squashy taste. The dish was easy to prepare and very flavorful. I th...

This was great! I used zucchini instead of the bell pepper and mozzarella cheese. It was excellent and good leftover as well. Will definitely make again.

This was excellent using homegrown spaghetti squash! Instead of using the nutritional info (it seemed high), I figured this out according to my weight watchers points system. This made 8 cups ...
