Baked Squasherole

The following recipe came from an indecisive night fighting between craving spaghetti squash and some sort of lasagna/pizza. By baking the squash, the cheese melts, and something feels a little devilish layering the cheese (it totally reminds me of Outback's cheese fries- hello most caloric meal in America!)

Presenting, (drumroll, please) the magnificent squasherole, aka baked spaghetti squash casserole:

To make this casserole pasta swapsta, you will need:
1 spaghetti squash, cooked and shredded (instructions here)
1/2 cup marinara sauce (recipe here if you want to make your own)
4oz shredded mozzarella cheese

To prepare, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine squash and sauce, and mix until evenly combined. Then, in an oven safe baking dish, arrange half your spaghetti squash/sauce mixture in the pan. Cover with cheese, add the rest of the squash, and then the rest of the cheese. Bake just until the cheese is melted and the squash is hot (10 minutes, max). Optionally, you can then put it in the broiler for about 15-30 seconds to brown the cheese. Pin It
