Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

October 31, 2018

 

When you think of lasagna, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? We’d bet it has something to do with bubbling hot tomato sauce and cheese.

 

With this recipe, we’ve focused on the good stuff, which means you’ll still get plenty of sauce and cheese. Instead of pasta noodles, you’ll load up on spaghetti squash (which is a fiber-rich, lower-carb alternative to pasta).

 

Ditching the noodles saves on calories and makes room for plenty of cheese. After a trip to the oven, the spaghetti squash noodles will have absorbed some of the tomato and cheesy goodness. A sprinkle of basil makes the flavors really pop, but the dish still tastes delicious without it.

 

This sinfully delicious Spaghetti Squash Lasagna is made with all-natural marinara, part-skim ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and healthy spaghetti squash.
