  • Brush butter lightly over squash halves. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, about 40 minutes. Cool until easily handled, about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, mushrooms, red onion, green bell pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, until flavors combine, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Scrape squash flesh into the skillet; mix into the beef mixture. Spoon into a large casserole dish. Fold in mozzarella cheese; top with crushed crackers.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 40 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Chop 2 fresh tomatoes instead of using canned diced tomatoes if desired.

This Spaghetti Squash casserole was a quick meal to put together. I was able to do it in one deep frying pan, straight from stove-top to oven. A flavourful, colourful meal that not only was enjoyed by me, but also my husband. I replaced 1/2 cup of Mozzarella with 1/2 cup of Texas seasoned grated cheese. This added a mild zest to the casserole. It's versatility will be a welcome addition to our table. Read More
