Serves: 4
  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • Can be made with ground beef, pork, turkey or sausage.
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Pierce the squash all over with a sharp knife and place the whole thing in the oven for ~20 minutes. This softens it so it's easier to cut (i.e. lowers the risk of losing your hand!).
  3. Using oven mitts or towels, remove from oven and slice in half.
  4. Scoop out seeds with a spoon and place both halves back into oven face down on rack for another 20-25 minutes.
  5. Once cooled, shred the squash with a fork to create "noodles."
  6. Plate the spaghetti squash in a large serving bowl and top with marinara sauce and meatballs.
  7. After presenting the dish, toss to evenly coat the squash with sauce.
