Fall is finally here, the weather is starting to cool, and the leaves…oh the glorious leaves, are starting to change colors.
I am a big fan of Fall for many reasons. The clothes, plaids, and sweaters, and cute boots, and even cuter jackets. But really, my favorite part of Fall is the food.
Slow cookers, soups, squash, and all those tasty fall flavors. I just can’t get enough. Which is why when I saw Spaghetti Squash at my local store I knew I had to share this amazing Fall recipe with you guys.
I love spaghetti squash. It is a delicious food, but it is also fun. When you cook it, you can pull the fibers out to make squash noodles. It resembles spaghetti. And, it tastes great! I have used it several times and in several ways, but this Spaghetti Squash Lasagna is my favorite. Hands down, the best way to cook spaghetti squash ever.
When you stuff it with all the yummy things, like sausage, ricotta, and marinara, it just gets even more amazing.
Tips for Cooking Spaghetti Squash Lasagna:
- Cutting Spaghetti Squash: The squash can be hard to cut. To make it a little easier, put it in the microwave for about a minute before you try cutting, this should soften up the skin a little and make slicing it easier.
- Cooking to Done: Also, keep in mind that every squash is a different size, so you may have to cook it a bit longer to get the nice and tender squash meat. The color of the flesh should be a darker yellow. Check it before you fill the squash with your lasagna filling. If you bought larger ones, cook for longer than the recommended 50 minutes.
- Stuffing Spaghetti Squash: Stuff them full, but not too full. If you over-fill the squash, it will fall down the sides and be a mess. It is easier to serve and eat if you just fill the cavity full, but not over-full.
- Broil that cheese: You will put the filling in, and bake the squash a bit longer, and the cheese will start to melt, but to get extra delicious melty cheese, broil for 2-3 minutes at the end. Keep an eye on it though so it doesn’t burn!
