“In this low-carb spaghetti squash lasagna recipe, garlicky broccolini, spaghetti squash and cheese are combined for a healthy take on a favorite casserole. This bakes right in the squash shells for a fun presentation. Serve with a big Caesar salad and some warm and crusty whole-grain bread.”


    • 1 2½- to 3-pound spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 bunch broccolini, chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
    • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
    • ¾ teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  • 1.  Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 450°F.
  • 2.  Place squash cut-side down in a microwave-safe dish; add 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, uncovered, on High until the flesh is tender, about 10 minutes. (Alternatively, place squash halves cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a 400°F oven until the squash is tender, 40 to 50 minutes.)
  • 3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add broccolini, garlic and red pepper (if using); cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add water and cook, stirring, until the broccolini is tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • 4.  Use a fork to scrape the squash from the shells into the bowl. Place the shells in a broiler-safe baking pan or on a baking sheet. Stir ¾ cup mozzarella, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper into the squash mixture. Divide it between the shells; top with the remaining ¼ cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan.
  • 5.   Bake on the lower rack for 10 minutes. Move to the upper rack, turn the broiler to high and broil, watching carefully, until the cheese starts to brown, about 2 minutes.
