  • Drizzle the inside of spaghetti squash with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place squash flesh-side down on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until fork-tender, about 1 hour. Let cool until safe to handle. Use a fork to scrape strands across the width of the squash into a bowl.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef, garlic, and dried onion in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add pizza sauce to the skillet; mix to combine and set meat sauce aside.

  • Combine cream cheese, sour cream, and parsley in a small mixing bowl and stir well.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

  • Place 1/2 the cooked spaghetti squash into the prepared baking dish. Top with 1/2 the meat sauce and all of the cream cheese mixture. Add remaining spaghetti squash followed by remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle shredded Italian cheese blend on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and casserole is hot, about 20 minutes.

It had a good flavor but I guess I just don't like spaghetti squash. The squash had the texture of al dente angel hair pasta (which I also don't care for.). I'm sure it's just a matter of taste on my part. My friend tried it and liked it. I sent the rest of it home with her to share with her Mom. Sorry. Read More
