Spaghetti Squash with Easy Meat Sauce

5.0
7 Ratings
Trust me, sweet roasted spaghetti squash and this savory meat sauce were made for each other. Serve them right in their shells and have a party. You can always make the full recipe and reheat your leftovers the next day. Just scoop the squash strands out of their shells, throw them in a frying pan with a little olive oil and they’ll be good as new from the fridge.

Cut Spaghetti Squash (27 cups) in half, and deseed the squash.
Step 3
Divide and drizzle Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) on top. Season with some Salt and Pepper (to taste) .
Step 4
Turn the squash over onto baking pans so they're cut side down.
Step 5
Roast for 50-60 minutes, or until a knife pierces into the thickest part of the squash easily.
Step 6
While the squash roasts, begin preparing the meat sauce. Finely dice the Onion (1) and mince the Garlic (2 cloves) .
Step 7
Peel and wash the Carrots (2) . Grate the carrots using a box grater with its largest holes.
Step 8
In a large pan or wide pot over medium high heat, add Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) . Add the Ground Beef (1.5 lb) and use a wooden spoon to break the meat apart. Brown the meat for 5 minutes.
Step 9
Add the chopped carrots, onions and garlic. Season with Salt and Pepper (to taste) and add the Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/2 tsp) . Cook until vegetables are soft and tender, about 5 minutes.

Grate Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) . Shave some parmesan cheese with a vegetable peeler for the garnish.
Step 14
Take the squash out of the oven and pierce a knife through the thickest part of the squash to check for doneness.
Step 15
Using a fork, gently scrape the flesh off of the roasted squash. Keep a bit of border so that the squash will keep its shape for when you serve.
Step 16
Drizzle with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Step 17
Divide the grated parmesan cheese evenly amoung the 4 halves. Mix the parmesan and squash.
Step 18
