Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Tyson is not a squash fan, but even he likes this rendition.  And it is one of my favorites, too!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with a thin layer of cooking spray. Place squash halves cut side down on the baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife can be easily inserted. Remove from oven, and cool.

Heat a tablespoon or two of oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Saute the onion until golden brown.  Add the garlic, and saute one minute more.  Stir in tomatoes, basil, bouillon cube, and black pepper.  Cook for about 15 minutes, or until you have a medium thick sauce.

Remove squash strands with a fork.  Grease a 8×12-inch baking dish.  Layer with half of the sauce, half of the spaghetti squash strands, and half of the cheese.  Repeat layers.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the cheese melts.

Creamy Spinach Enchiladas

The cup of heavy cream doesn’t exactly help the nutrition content of this veggie-filled dish, but it makes it taste sooo good!

Ingredients

  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 6 ounces Cheddar, grated (1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 4.5-ounce cans chopped green chilies
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed
  • Enchilada topping (recipe follows)

Directions

Heat oven to 400° F. In a medium bowl, mix together the spinach, corn, 1 cup of the Cheddar, and 1 can of the chilies. In a small bowl, stir together the cream, the remaining can of chilies, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Dividing evenly, roll up the spinach mixture in the tortillas (about ⅓ cup per tortilla). Place seam-side down in a shallow baking dish. Top with the cream sauce and the remaining ½ cup of Cheddar. Cover with foil and bake until bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.  Serve with the following enchilada topping.

Enchilada Topping:

  • 1/4 small red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup pepitas (roasted hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

In a large bowl, toss the cabbage and scallions with the pepitas, oil, lime juice, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the enchiladas.
