Baked Spaghetti Squash


  • 1 spagetti squash
  • 1 1/2 cups mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano or italien herb blend (I usually throw in whatever fresh herbs I have Parsley, Basil, Thyme etc 1/4cup each, the more the merrier)
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella or parmesan


  1. Slice squash lengthwise and bake at 375 until flesh is soft approx. 30-40 minutes. Let squash cool and then using a fork scrape the squash, it will come off in spagetti type strings. Sautee mushrooms, garlic, onion and herbs together. When the onions are soft add tomatoes and simmer until liquid has almost evaporated. Combine all ingredients in a baking dish, top with cheese and bake uncovered at 375 for an hour.

    This is my all-time favourite veggie dinner, my mom used to make it for me throughout my adolescent vegetarian years. Freezes well, great to make ahead of time. The photo has feta on top because that's all I had but mozzarella or parmesan is much tastier.
