Spaghetti Squash Lasagna ~ Freezer Friendly

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna ~ Freezer Friendly

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

It’s summer time, yay! That also means it’s time to get down to business in the “eating a little healthier” department. I love regular spaghetti, but it’s time for me to tighten up on the healthy end. I think you’re going to love my solution. Spaghetti Squash Lasagna is what I’ve come up with. It’s delicious, easy, and a little on the healthier side. I fell in love with the taste of this recipe, but so did the rest of my family. I’m hoping you enjoy this as much as we did.

Not only are we trying to hit the healthier market for the summer this recipe is freezer friendly. After all it might not be the most time friendly by the time you have to cook the spaghetti squash to turn it into spaghetti. You might as well make two at one time and pop one in the freezer. When your ready to use the second Spaghetti Squash Lasagna let it thaw in the fridge overnight and cook as directed. You might need to add a little extra time (up to 20 minutes) depending on whether yours was completely thawed or not.

    • Brandy

      It’s hard to pass up something that’s covered in cheese. Served with garlic bread and it’s a guaranteed hit in our house!

  • Janice

    Wow! Great idea.
