  • 2 medium spaghetti squash about 4 lbs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 cups tomato sauce

For meatballs:


  • Preheat the oven to 400. Prepare two lined baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat baking sheet.
  • Slice the spaghetti squash lengthwise, remove seeds + place on baking sheet.
  • Spray the spaghetti squash with olive oil and place open face up (see photos). Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • While spaghetti squash is baking, in a bowl, mix together meatball batter.
  • Roll in ½ inch balls. Bake for 10 minutes
  • While meatballs are baking, remove spaghetti squash from the oven and shred by pulling at the center with a fork. Remove about half of the squash from the skins.
  • Once meatballs have cooked, remove them from the baking sheet.
  • In a bowl, stir together cooked meatballs, shredded spaghetti squash filling and the tomato sauce.
  • Stuff the spaghetti squash skins with the mixture. Top with mozzarella + put back into the oven for 10-12 minutes.
  • Optional: For the last 2 minutes turn the oven on Broil/High to get an extra brown, crispy, cheesy top
