Pizza Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Dieting is hard especially if pizza is just right in front of you. This is why Feed me Seymour Blog has come up with a vegetarian dinner that could be a great alternative to your ordinary take out pizza. Here's the recipe fr a stuffed spaghetti squash pie:

1 medium-sized spaghetti squash
1 cup pizza sauce
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Carefully slice the squash in half lengthwise. Place it in a baking dish, cut-side down, and fill the dish with about ¼ to ½ inch water.
  2. Bake for 60 minutes until the squash is tender. Allow it to cool until it can be handled.
  3. Once the squash is cool, use a fork and run the tines along the squash. The tender flesh will begin to pull away from the skin in ribbons, almost like spaghetti.
  4. Continue to score the flesh until it is all pulled from the skin. Take the flesh and place it in a bowl, reserving the skin for later.
  5. Add the pizza sauce, mozzarella, basil and red pepper flakes to the squash flesh and mix well to completely combine.
  6. Take the two squash skins and divide the flesh mixture between them. Top with an additional sprinkling of mozzarella cheese.
  7. Place the squash halves on a baking sheet and place in the oven for an additional 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese has fully melted.
