Spaghetti Squash dinner.

Anyone who knows me well knows that I always improvise on recipes or make them up completely. Today was actually a success. I LOVED IT! You should definitely try this one even if you don't like squash. You can even use this for a side. Sometimes we also add 1 large chicken breast.

1 Spaghetti Squash
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 red bell pepper
1 chopped onion (I used dried onion flakes)
1 clove garlic, minced (I used the stuff that is already minced)
1 Roma tomato
1/2 c. Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4 t salt
dash pepper
1/2 Tbsp Basil (I used dried basil leaves)

1. Slice squash lengthwise (clean out seeds) and place cut sides down on cookie sheet (sprayed with cooking spray). Bake at 350 for 30-45 min.

2. Meanwhile, spray a skillet with cooking spray and saute onion, peppers and garlic. Stir in tomatoes and basil and cook it only until tomatoes are warm.

3. When squash is done use a fork to clean out the insides and throw away the skin. Put in a bowl and add salt and pepper. Then mix everything together including cheese.
This fed us three so you may need to double or triple it according to your family size. I was actually surprised at how good it was. YUM!!!

Children: Make sure things are cut into bite sizes

Baby: Keep some Spaghetti squash separated before you add seasonings and vegetables. Cut into small peices. You can also slice cheese and tomato separately.
