Easy Keto Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
Indulge your senses in the tasty marinara sauce combined with cheesy goodness and ground beef placed inside a spaghetti squash lasagna boat, for a delicious keto-friendly meal.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 jar low carb spaghetti sauce (see low carb sauce suggestions in post)
- 1 whole spaghetti squash
- 6 oz Ricotta Cheese
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 medium egg
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
- 4 cloves garlic minced
Brown ground beef and minced garlic, then drain if desired.
Add low carb spaghetti sauce to the meat mixture and simmer with a lid on the pot for about 10 minutes.
Pierce spaghetti squash with knife and cook for 5 min in microwave.
Cut in half and dig out seeds then brush the insides with a light coat of olive oil and salt/pepper. Place facing down on a baking sheet and bake approx 25-35 min in a 375- degree oven until tender. Cooking times will vary depending on the size of the spaghetti squash. You'll want it to be a bit al dente since you will bake it again once the lasagna boats are assembled.
Remove from the oven when done and allow to cool for 5 min.
With a fork, scrape out the inside of the spaghetti squash, leaving the spaghetti squash inside the shell to make a "boat."
Combine 6oz of Ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, egg, and Italian seasoning.
To assemble Spaghetti Squash boats:
Spoon the ricotta cheese mixture on top of the loosened spaghetti squash.
Add spaghetti sauce
Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese, then sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on top.
Bake in a 400-degree oven for 25 minutes.
