Spaghetti Squash Casserole

This recipe comes from Mollie Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook. It takes about 1.5 hours to prepare, but it is delicious! Makes a great Thanksgiving dinner dish.

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 medium cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 fresh tomatoes (medium-size)
  • ½ lb. fresh, sliced mushrooms (baby bella recommended)
  • ½ tsp. oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup cottage or ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • ¼ cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • dash of thyme
  • 1 cup fine bread crumbs
  • butter for sauté
  • Parmesan (generous amount for topping)

Preheat oven to 375º

Slice the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Bake it, face-down, on a buttered tray at 375º for about 30-45 minutes, or until easily pierced by a fork. Cool until handleable. Scoop out insides.

While the squash bakes, sauté the onions and garlic with salt, pepper, mushrooms and herbs. When onions are soft, add freshly-chopped tomatoes. Cook until most of the liquid evaporates.

Combine all ingredients. Pour into buttered 2-quart casserole. Top with lots of grated parmesan. Bake at 375º, uncovered, about 40 minutes.
