Take-out Tuesday, Broccoli Stuffed Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Garlic, Fresh Mozzarella, and Parmesan

 

This dish sounds fancy, but shhh….

It’s really super easy to throw together after a busy day

 

 

 

 

Spaghetti Squash, broccoli, fresh garlic, Parmesan and Mozzarella

Fresh, healthy ingredients

 

 

 

 

First, put 6-8 deep slits into the squash with a small sharp knife

Then microwave it for 5 minutes

Now cutting it in half will be much easier

 

 

 

 

Spray the cut sides with olive oil spray or brush them lightly with olive oil

 

 

 

 

Place cut side down on one end of a parchment or foil lined baking sheet

Place broccoli on the other end and peeled garlic cloves on a small piece of foil

Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and squeeze lemon over broccoli

 

 

 

 

Close foil around garlic and spread broccoli into an even layer

 

 

 

 

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes

Note: I like a lot of char on my broccoli, if you don’t, then remove broccoli from pan when it’s done to your liking and return squash to oven until done

Sprinkle Parmesan on broccoli

 

 

 

 

Turn squash over and scrape out seeds

 

 

 

 

Now take a fork and gently scrape out the spaghetti squash noodles

 

 

 

 

Put broccoli, squash noodles, and mozzarella* into a mixing bowl

*I used about 1 oz mozzarella per squash half, use as much or as little as you like

 

 

 

 

Unwrap garlic packet and squeeze roasted garlic out over vegetables

 

 

 

 

 

Season with pepper {it doesn’t need more salt as the Parmesan is salty}

Fill squash halves with vegetable mixture and top with more Parmesan

 

 

 

 

Return to oven for 15 minutes to heat through and melt cheese

 

 

 

 

This can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated.  If chilled, add 10-15 more minutes to final cooking time

Add cooked chicken, bacon, ham, beef or pork to make this a heartier dish

Broccoli Stuffed Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Garlic, fresh Mozzarella & Parmesan

  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

active prep time is only 10-15 minutes, and total baking time is about 1 hour

1 Spaghetti Squash

6 oz Broccoli florets

3-4 Garlic cloves, peeled

1/2 lemon

olive oil spray, or olive oil

Fresh Mozzarella cheese pearls or fresh mozzarella cut into small pieces

Fresh Parmesan cheese, grated

Salt & pepper

Prick squash in 6-8 places with a knife or fork. Microwave for 5 minutes. This will make the squash easier to cut. Cut in half lengthwise. Spray cut sides with olive oil spray or brush with a light coating of olive oil.  Place squash on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet cut side down, on one end of the baking sheet.

Place garlic on a small piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold edges together forming a packet and place on the same baking pan.

Place broccoli in a pile on the other half of baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, juice from 1/2 lemon, salt and pepper. Toss gently with fingers to coat broccoli, then spread into an even layer.

Place baking pan in a preheated 375 degree oven and bake for 40 minutes.

Gently scrape seeds off squash.  Remove spaghetti from shells by running a fork across the cooked squash, the tines will remove the spaghetti like squash strings.  Place into a large mixing bowl.

Add broccoli and then squeeze garlic cloves over vegetables. Add mozzarella and combine. Place filling back into squash shells. Top with Parmesan. Bake at 350 until heated through and cheese has melted, about 15 minutes.

Note: you can assemble these earlier in the day and refrigerate until the final baking. Add 15-20 minutes to final baking time if cold.

 

 

 

Enjoy!

    Oh my! This looks DELISH! Thank you, will have to try it. Tonight we had your recipe, creamy Bacon topped Chicken and Biscuits bake. Very good. I did add 1/4 cup milk to make my soup mixture a little creamy as mine was very thick, but it turned out great. Thank you Jenna, a keeper for sure.

    Yum! I can smell that roasted garlic!! I like your tip about microwaving it first so you can cut the squash easier as I always struggle with that part. I will have to try your recipe! 🥦🧄🧀
