Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Casserole

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Casserole

Try this vegetarian lasagna for a healthy dinner!

INGREDIENTS:

• 1 medium spaghetti squash (about 4 cups cooked)
• 1 and ½ cups lowfat ricotta cheese
• 1 large egg
• 1 teaspoon dried basil
• 1 teaspoon dried oregano
• ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 and ½ cups thick marinara sauce
• 4 cups fresh baby spinach
• ½ cup part-skim Mozzarella cheese
• Garnish: grape tomatoes, red pepper flakes

DIRECTIONS:

Slice spaghetti squash in half, remove the seeds, and bake it flesh side down for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.

To make this recipe quickly, use leftover spaghetti squash. Run a fork into the spaghetti squash to create strands, and throw away the skin. Use a paper towel to pat away excess moisture.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the ricotta with the egg, basil, oregano, and garlic powder. Begin layering by placing ½ cup of the marinara sauce in the bottom of a greased 8×8 or 9×9 pan. Continue with 2 cups of cooked spaghetti squash, ¾ of a cup of the ricotta mixture, 2 cups of torn fresh spinach, ½ cup marinara sauce, and a ¼ cup mozzarella. Repeat the process once with those same amounts (layering spaghetti squash, ricotta, spinach, pasta sauce, and finally mozzarella). Garnish with sliced grape tomatoes, any additional chopped spinach or mozzarella, and red pepper flakes.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, until bubbling.

Let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing. To serve immediately, use a slotted spoon and allow any excess liquid to drain out of the pan. Leftovers will be even firmer and slice into nice squares.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
