Recipe Ingredients for Spaghetti Squash

1 squash, large
6 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 oz romano cheese, shredded
1/4 lb prosciutto, sliced and chopped
1 carrot
1/2 lb ground beef, lean
1 onion
1/4 c tomato paste
1/2 c red wine
1/2 c beef stock
1/2 c basil
1/2 c parsley

Recipe Directions for Spaghetti Squash

  1. Place the spaghetti squash halves, cut side up, onto a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons EVOO, salt and pepper. Turn the squash over so they're cut side down and roast until the flesh is tender, about 45 minutes to an hour. Once cooked, use a fork to loosen the squash strands up. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons EVOO, ground black pepper, and a sprinkle of cheese. Reserve squash in the shells.

  2. While the squash is roasting, place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Add the pancetta to the pan and cook until crispy, about 5 minutes. Add the sirloin to the pan and cook until golden brown, 6-7 minutes. Add the carrots, onion and garlic to the pan and cook until the veggies are tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Season everything with salt and pepper, and add the tomato paste, cooking it until golden brown and aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the red wine and beef stock scraping the bottom for any bits that may be stuck, and cook sauce until thickened and slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.

  4. To serve, ladle meat sauce on top of each squash half and garnish each with fresh basil, parsley and additional Pecorino-Romano cheese.
