Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce

Sometimes you just crave comfort food and this was definitely comfort food. It felt like I was eating off program but I wasn’t. I like Mezzetta Marina Sauce. It is one of the lowest carb marinara sauces that I have found. It is only 3 net carbs per serving.

This recipe was very easy to take to work and reheat there. It did not spike my glucose at all.

Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce

  • 1 medium size spaghetti squash
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 28 ounce jar Mezzetta Marinara Sauce
  • 1 4-ounce can mushroom pieces
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese

Cut spaghetti squash in half and scoop out seeds from the inside and discard seeds. Place spaghetti squash in stockpot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook for 15 minutes or until tender when poked with a fork. When squash is completely cooked remove from water and using a fork, shred the inside of the squash into strands of “spaghetti”.

In a saute pan cook ground beef until crumbled and no longer pink and then drain. Add Mezzetta Marinara Sauce and mushrooms and stir until combined.

On a plate place the spaghetti squash and then top with marinara sauce mixture. Top with both cheeses and serve. Serves 6.

  1. Made this tonight, it was delish! Thanks so much. I always seem to forget about using spaghetti squash….and it is such a good pasta replacement.

    • You are very welcome. We enjoyed it too. I was worried since my son-in-law is Italian and used to the authentic stuff but he enjoyed this one too. đŸ™‚
