Ingredients
  

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic minced

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained

  • Cut squash in half lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Place squash, cut side down, in a baking dish. Fill pan with hot water to a depth of 1/2 in. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30-40 minutes or until tender.
  • When cool enough to handle, scoop out squash, separating strands with a fork; set shells and squash aside.
  • In a skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the mushrooms, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in squash.
  • Cook, uncovered, until liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Fill shells; place in shallow baking dish.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
