    Spaghetti Squash Boats make a delicious side dish cut down or a full blown low carb vegetarian meal for one. Want to get creative? Add chicken, beef, or sausage in your boat for a totally filling and perfectly healthy dinner tonight.


    Ingredients

    1 spaghetti squash
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    3 tablespoons minced garlic
    4 ounce cream cheese cubed
    1/2 cup cottage cheese
    2 cups chopped fresh spinach
    1/2 cup shredded Parmesan or Asiago cheese
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    salt and pepper

    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 350.
    Cut squash in half lengthwise.
    Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and discard. Spray flesh side of squash with cooking spray or brush with oil. Place flesh side down in a large baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes or until soft and tender. Remove from oven and let set for 15 minutes.
    Loosen the spaghetti squash with a fork and set flesh side up in baking dish.
    In a skillet, add oil, garlic and cream cheese.
    Heat on low heat, stirring frequently until all cheese is melted. Stir in cottage cheese, and spinach and heat until warm, about 2 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Divide mixture in half and spread onto each halves of the squash. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese onto each squash boat.Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
    Broil for 2 minutes until cheese just begins to brown.
    Serve immediately

    Recipe Notes

    This takes at least 30-45 minutes to cook the squash to make it tender. Then another 20 minutes to cook the cheese/filing on top. Add about 5-7 minutes for the fill ing to cook on the stove. The time to prep is about 15 minutes.
