Recipe Ingredients for Italian Baked Spaghetti Squash

4 cups spaghetti squash
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, fat free
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup green bell pepper, diced
2 cups tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash of pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, for topping

Recipe Directions for Italian Baked Spaghetti Squash

  1. Cut squash into halves lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Place cut side down in 2 inches of simmering water in a heavy stock pot or saute pan. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, peppers, tomato sauce, and spices (except Parmesan and additional mozzarella). Stir to mix.

  3. Holding hot squash with a potholder or oven mitts, run the tines of a fork across the pulp to release the "spaghetti". Place "spaghetti" in the large mixing bowl of cheese, sauce, and spices. Stir to coat.
