  • Combine cottage cheese, eggs, mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, and salt in a bowl; set aside.

  • Arrange spaghetti squash slices in the bottom of prepared baking pan; pour half the spaghetti sauce over squash slices and spread into an even layer. Cover with cottage cheese mixture in an even layer, followed by remaining spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle top of lasagna with with Parmesan cheese. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling and the Parmesan cheese has melted, about 35 minutes. Remove dish from oven, remove foil, and bake until cheese topping is lightly browned, another 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Serve it in a bowl instead of a plate, as consistency may be a little runnier than you are used to with a typical lasagna, due to the water content of the squash.

Delicious! We eat a few veggie dinners a week and this was a great alternative to traditional (even vegetarian) lasagne. I am Italian so I doctored it up a bit used homemade sauce and added some things. I sauteed garlic onion and 2 zucchini in olive oil first while the spaghetti squash was cooking. Then I added the two squashes together and mixed the cheese mixture. I used a whole container of skim ricotta instead of cottage cheese (similar calories) with the parm and mozz. I added lots of italian herbs and two eggs to the cheese mixture. I don't like mine super saucey so I only topped with marinara and then with more parm and mozz. Baked 30 mins and was delish. My husband took the next two days to work for lunch and was pleased with it! And he LOVES pasta! Read More

I took it to a friend of mine who is sensitive to gluten and she said it was good. Not enough instructions on how to prepare the spaghetti squash... Should you bake it first? Or jus peel and slice it? Read More

Great! Not too low carb, but a great way to get that Italian taste! Cooking4-5---wash the squash, cut in half, scrape out seeds and nuke for a good 15 minutes. Let cool and then just scrape out the squash w/a fork and enjoy as you would any noodle! And add some Italian sausage, for cryin' out loud!!! Read More

I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese and mixed up my own blend of Italian spices. Rather than use slices I made the squash in the traditional way raking the squash strands from a cooked spaghetti squash. My preferred method of cooking spaghetti squash is to cut it in half remove the seeds and bake cut side down for about 25 to 30 minutes at 375 degrees. I put half of the squash in the bottom of the pan added half the sauce and topped with the ricotta cheese mixture. Another layer of squash more sauce the Parmesan cheese and some additional mozzarella completed the lasagna. The addition of Italian sausage would be great. This vegetarian and gluten free meal will grace our table again! Read More

We were amazed how much this tasted like lasa. I prepared the squash more traditionally: baked and scraped out of the shell then drained. I've also found if I add a couple tablespoons of flour to whatever sauce I'm baking the squash with it really helps the watery factor. I added spinach to the cottage cheese layer and mushrooms tomatoes and bell pepper to the spaghetti sauce just because I had them and they needed to be used up. Amazing! Read More

This is definitely a recipe I will try again! It was a huge pain to cut up and peel the squash so next time I will bake the squash first and scoop! (I've never made spaghetti squash before!) The flavor was great and was super easy other that cutting the squash. I think I will also double the amount of squash in comparison to the amount of sauce/cheese. I usually use ricotta but loved the texture the cottage gave! Read More

we really enjoyed this dish.. i cut the recipe in half as our squash was on the smaller side.. it wouldn't even spread into one layer in a 2 quart pyrex so i had to use two smaller vessels.. i forgot the salt and parm and probably used more than half the can of spaghetti sauce.. i made sure to prebake the squash and scoop out the flesh layering with the spaghetti sauce on the bottom squash cottage cheese mixture (had to sub jack for mozz) fresh spinach and seasoned ground turkey (repeat etc).. i topped the final layers with some more shredded jack.. bf said he didn't miss the pasta in this at all.. ty for the recipe Read More

Delicious. Made a great meal. I used spaghetti squash frozen from last year already grated so my lasagna ended up more like a casserole. Also I added ground beef to the cottage cheese mixture. Turned out wonderfully. Read More
