Creamy Spaghetti Squash Casserole (aka my newest food experiment!)
I was recently introduced to spaghetti squash for the very first time ever -- and I loved it! I mean, it's like the healthy low-calorie alternative to pasta, which is one of my weaknesses. ;)
So what better to do than to smother the healthy vegetable with things like cream cheese, butter, and sour cream?! This isn't really a "health food" kind of meal after all, but it is super yummy!!
Along the lines of dreamy spaghetti and/or three-cheese baked spaghetti, this Creamy Spaghetti Squash Casserole is a delicious baked main dish. The squash is layered in the bottom with a cheesy white sauce taste, and then topped with spaghetti sauce, meat, and more cheese. I made this recipe without cottage cheese, which is a no-no for my lactose-intolerant husband. Edited to add: I did use sour cream, which contains lactose. Hmmm. Still figuring out the whole lactose-free way of life. :)
While it doesn't taste exactly like spaghetti would, it's a very delicious alternative. And if you grow your own squash (or know someone with extras from their garden!) this is just one way of incorporating it into your menu. :)
Now, I've just rambled on about a vegetable I've only ever cooked twice in my life. I need you guys to tell me what YOU like to do with spaghetti squash!
