Pizza Squash Boats
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • Toppings
  • green bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup mini turkey pepperonis
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
  • mushrooms sliced
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tbsp parsley
  • red onion slices
  • Procedure

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Poke holes in squash with a fork and microwave 5 minutes to soften up the squash.
  • Score all the way around the squash lengthwise with a knife, marking the line of the cut. Cut squash in half lengthwise, scrape out seeds.
  • Brush with olive oil, season with salt & pepper.
  • Place cut-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for about 40 minutes, until tender enough to scrape strands. Should be easily pierced with a fork. (Not TOO cooked through since you’ll cook more later.) Time will vary depending on the size of squash.
  • Can store in the fridge for a few days before making your boat, or prep to eat immediately.
  • When cool enough and ready to eat, scrape/shred the squash.
  • Reduce oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Place each squash boat face-up on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  • Add ½ cup pasta sauce to each spaghetti squash boat. Split up ⅓ cup of mozzarella between each boat. Mix with the squash shreds.
  • Top each boat with additional ⅓ cup of mozzarella cheese and flaked parmesan cheese. Sprinkle additional toppings onto each boat.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Then broil, if needed to get the cheese golden brown (for 4-6 minutes). Be sure to monitor the squash boats while they’re broiling!
  • Serve & enjoy!
