Creamy Spaghetti Squash Casserole
As soon as I saw this recipe by the Detoxinista, I just knew I had to make my own version ASAP!! When I was young I LOVED creamy casserole dishes. My mom made the most delicious tuna casserole with elbow pasta, cream of mushroom, green beans, tuna, and LOTS of cheese – Midwest comfort food at it’s finest, but not healthy in the least.
This recipe is SO yummy! It is a great way to sneak veggies into a picky child or spouse’s diet. It tastes way too good to be healthy…or so they’ll think!
- 1 large spaghetti squash
- 1 sweet onion, diced
- 6 oz greek yogurt
- 4oz shredded goat cheddar, Alta Dena is my favorite brand
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped fine
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- organic butter
- sea salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F.
First, cut your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scrape away the seeds. Drizzle with a little sea salt and fresh cracked pepper and place face down on a lined baking sheet and cook for about 45 minutes.
While the squash is baking, prepare your filling. In a medium skillet over med-high heat add a small pat of butter, minced garlic, diced onion, a pinch of sea salt, and pepper and cook for several minutes until soft.
In a large mixing bowl combine the cooked onions and garlic with greek yogurt, 1 oz of shredded goat cheddar, parsley, nutmeg, sea salt and pepper to taste.
Remove squash from the oven and let cool. When your squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape out the inside which will come apart in strands. Place spaghetti squash strands in your mixing bowl, and combine all ingredients together. Place your mixture in a large baking dish and top with the remaining 3 oz of shredded goat cheddar. Place back in the oven at 400 degrees and let cook for about 15mins. Then set the oven to Broil and cook until the top has formed a delicious golden brown crust.
Serve immediately and prepare to be blown away at how delicious this is!! Thanks again to The Detoxinista for inspiring this delicious, healthy comfort food recipe!! You are the healthy comfort food queen!
