Spaghetti Squash Bake with Mushroom Blue Cheese Sauce

  • One spaghetti squash
  • Crushed tomatoes (I used Pomi)
  • Mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • Three Laughing Cow blue cheese wedges
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning
  • Cilantro
What To Do:
Cook the spaghetti squash. I microwave it. The squash I bought at Trader Joe’s had a sticker with instructions on it. Since the squash was very big, I had to microwave it for about 18 minutes.

Sautee the mushrooms in some olive oil and season them with a little salt and pepper. Once the mushrooms are soft, add three wedges of blue cheese Laughing Cow wedges.

Cut the cooked squash in half and remove the seeds.

Use a fork to “make spaghetti.” It’s like magic… Smile

Put a layer of the spaghetti squash in a greased casserole dish. Season with salt, pepper, and everyday seasoning.

Sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese.

Add a layer of tomatoes followed by a layer of mushrooms.

Continue with layers of squash, Parmesan cheese, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Finish with tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

Sprinkle with cilantro or any other herb you like. Basil would go nicely with the dish, but we love cilantro and had some leftover from our CSA box.

Enjoy! Smile
