Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti

I LOVE this one. I am not a huge fan of Spaghetti but my son is and he LOVES it too!!

Cooking the Squash:
1 Spaghetti Squash

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.

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.

Making the Sauce:
1/3 lb lean ground beef or turkey (optional)
1/2 t. onion powder or 2 t. onion flakes
1 clove garlic
2 t Italian seasoning
6 oz tomato paste
8 oz tomato sauce
3/4 cup water

Brown meat and combine the rest of the ingredient in a sauce pan. heat until warm and then combine with squash.

Children: I cut strands of squash into smaller pieces. Just as I would with the noodles.

Babies: Give 'em the squash to eat up. Again, cut it into smaller pieces.

The salad was a delicious choice with this!
