I am back baby. New month – new insanely easy and tasty dinner recipe to make!

Sometimes it feels like I am feeding an army over here. Yet it’s only 4 of us eating dinner at night. But that gives me all the more reason to make super easy recipes that I can share with you guys. Savory food has quickly become one of my favorite recipes to make and share with you guys. Plus it feeds my family and is content for the blog, so I call that a win/win.

This healthy spaghetti squash pasta bake is the ultimate easy and delicious casserole type thing. It is made with only 4 key ingredients: spaghetti squash, ground meat, cheese and sauce. Plus you can really spice things up and add in whatever you want or are craving.

You can easily make this dish Whole30 too by omitting the cheese or adding in another dairy-free option too. Or if you want to make this dish vegetarian, omit the meat and add in your favorite veggies or veggie burger. Literally the possibilities are endless guys!

If you make this dish, let me know what you think!! I hope you love it as much as we do.

What ingredients you need to make spaghetti squash “pasta” bake:

  • Spaghetti squash
  • Ground beef, turkey or chicken (really any ground meat you are craving)
  • Marinara sauce or even vodka sauce is tasty in this too!
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic powder, dried basil sea salt, black pepper and oregano to taste

How to make gluten-free spaghetti squash casserole: 

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and slice your spaghetti squash in half length wise (if it is too firm – warm in microwave for 1-2 minutes to soften)
  2. Scoop out the seeds/flesh and discard or save to roast the seeds for snacking!
  3. Grease the squash and bake in oven (skin side up) for about 30 minutes or until you can easily scoop out the “spaghetti”
  4. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the spaghetti squash (if you don’t do this the recipe will work but it will be a little watery – I usually skip it and don’t mind)
  5. In a large cast iron skillet – add a splash of oil and cook the ground beef in crumbles over medium/high heat for about 8 minutes or so (until fully cooked) then remove from heat
  6. Mix in the spaghetti squash, sauce and seasonings together in skillet
  7. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake in oven at 450 for 10-15 minutes and enjoy while warm!
