Want to try a mouthwatering masterpiece? With so many ways to spice up this recipe, it is truly one everyone will enjoy. Not only is it an innovative and delicious dish, it is pretty healthy andeasy to make too! To make it even easier here is your sectioned out shopping list:
Spices you will need are: 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. red pepper (optional) and 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Vegetables you will need are: 1, 2 1/2 to 3 pound spaghetti squash, seeded and halved lengthwise, 1 bunch of chopped broccolini and 4 minced garlic cloves
Other ingredients you will need are: 1 cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and 2 Tbsp of water
You can also add light, ground turkey or vegetable turkey for texture and taste if you prefer. Or why not try a different kind of cheese or olive oil, the variations to this recipe are endless and here’s how it’s done:
Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 450°F.
Place squash cut-side down in a microwave-safe dish; add 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, uncovered, on High until the flesh is tender, about 10 minutes. (Alternatively, place squash halves cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a 400°F oven until the squash is tender, 40 to 50 minutes.)
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add broccolini, garlic and red pepper (if using); cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add water and cook, stirring, until the broccolini is tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Transfer to a large bowl.
Use a fork to scrape the squash from the shells into the bowl. Place the shells in a broiler-safe baking pan or on a baking sheet. Stir 3/4 cup mozzarella, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper into the squash mixture. Divide it between the shells; top with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan.
Bake on the lower rack for 10 minutes. Move to the upper rack, turn the broiler to high and broil, watching carefully, until the cheese starts to brown, about 2 minutes.
This recipe is so mouthwatering I think it is going to have to make an appearance in my home tonight!
