Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin Recipe
- 1 medium spaghetti squash
- pinch of salt
- pinch of black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of minced onion powder
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
- 3 ⁄4 cup of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 ⁄2 cup of cheddar cheese
- 1 ⁄2 cup of mozzarella cheese
- 1 ⁄4 cup of Parmesan cheese plus more for topping
- 4 slices of cooked bacon roughly chopped
- parsley for garnish if desired
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Poke holes all over squash with a fork. Put squash into the oven for 4-6 minutes, or until slightly softened. (In five minute intervals.)
- Cut squash in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out seeds and discard it.
- Drizzle olive oil over both halves of the squash and rub it all over (including the skin). Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper.
- Place squash on an aluminum foil wrapped pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until flesh is tender.
- Remove squash from the oven, allow to slightly cool, until safe to handle. Put oven on broiler setting.
- With a fork, scrape the flesh of the squash removing most of the inside leaving only a sturdy shell behind.
- Place the spaghetti squash flesh into a medium bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix well together. Divide the mixture into the center of both squash halves. Top with additional cheese and bacon.
- Place squash into the oven and broil until cheese is melted and golden, about 2-4 minutes.
