Instructions Checklist

  • Place each squash half cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until easily pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool until easily handled. Scrape insides of squash into spaghetti strands with a fork. Transfer to a colander and place over a bowl to drain.

  • While squash is baking, heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat; stir in onion and garlic. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sausage, breaking it up with a sturdy spoon to remove clumps. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Stir Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, and 1 teaspoon salt into the sausage mixture. Add crushed tomatoes, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes. Add wine and cook for another 30 minutes.

  • Mix ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, basil leaves, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper together in a bowl.

  • Layer 1/2 of the shredded spaghetti squash, 1/2 of the ricotta mixture, and 1/2 of the meat mixture in a 4-quart glass baking dish. Repeat layers once more, and top with mozzarella cheese slices.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, turning halfway through, until cheese is golden, about 1 hour.

  • Remove from the oven and immediately top with thin basil slices. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

I made this according to the recipe and it was excellent! I usually make lasagna with zucchini to avoid the pasta but had never tried it with spaghetti squash. I will definitely make it again and again. Read More

It was good and we liked it but made a couple of mistakes. First of all I bought the wrong sausage. I bought the type that was shown on the photo that Allrecipes has on it s website. Be careful to drain the squash very well. Also used diced tomatoes instead of crushed. The finished lasagna had lots of water in it and had to be drained. My family liked it. Will make again.
