Spaghetti squash is a popular target here at the Honour System. It’s one of my most favourite vegetables to cook with. Versatile, nutritious, consistent, tasty.

It’s . just . so . good . period . 😉

One of the top pages viewed on my site is this one for the southwestern inspired –> Baked Spaghetti Squash with Chicken & Beans. It was shared on the My Fitness Pal blog ‘Hello Healthy’ which subsequently brought me a sh*t ton of traffic. Yay! Thanks My Fitness Pal!

They also shared it on their Facebook page where it received a lot of comments. I mean, compared to my page where comments are fairly few, it seemed like quite a number. Being a super curious nosey parker, I read them all. People seemed to really love it, thought it looked yummy, shared it with their friends and all was good. Until …  <— that’s a dun dun duuuun sound back there <— I arrived at the one that stated “This looks nice, but I probably wouldn’t stuff mine full of dead animal flesh” or something to that effect. The dead animal flesh is word for word.

Yikes! I was a little taken aback for minute. It’s not like this is a vegan centered website. Just like it’s not a gluten free website or a paleo website. Do I have recipes that fit into these categories? Yes, I do. But, I also have recipes with chicken, cheese, grains, and honey. That’s what we do here. We do it all. 😉 As long as it’s real food and for the most part organic. Especially when it comes to my dead animal flesh. <– Not my words. See above.

Anyway, the whole point of this rant is even though it was worded in a nasty way, it’s a great freaking idea and instead of dwelling on what may have seemed a little mean/negative, I totally ran with it instead.

Welcome to my Lentil Lasagne Spaghetti Squash.

It’s really easy. Don’t let the list of instructions scare you. Time management makes this meal super efficient. Get your squash cooking first and everything else can prepared while it roasts. I use a jarred sauce to speed things up.

Once the squash is cooked all that needs to be done is the assembly and then back into the oven to get melty and delicious. Bring on the cheese! 🙂

  • Preheat oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with foil. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and stringy stuff. Rub each half with ½ tablespoon of olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper.
  • Cook, face down on the foil lined baking sheet for 30 minutes. The edges should be browned. Flip them over and let cool for five minutes.
  • While the spaghetti squash is baking, cook your lentil according to the package instructions. I like to use a little broth instead of half of the water. If you don’t have broth, liberally season the water with sea salt
  • While the lentils simmer heat your marinara sauce, in a medium sauce pan over medium low heat. Once the lentils are cooked add them to the sauce along with the 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta and parmesan along with the tablespoon of fresh chopped basil. I also saved a few ribbons of basil to top the squash with
  • Line a mesh strainer with paper towel and set over a bowl
  • To shred your spaghetti squash use a fork pull the strands away from the sides. Transfer them to the strainer and squeeze out some of the excess water. Don’t obsess over this part. It doesn’t have to be bone dry, just not sopping. Save the shells as you will be using them to cook your ‘lasagne’ in!
  • Stir the shredded squash into the pot with the lentils and marinara and mix it in well
  • Place the lentil marinara evenly into the bottom of each squash shell. Top that with even amounts of the ricotta and basil mixture. Finish with the shredded mozzarella
  • Lower the oven heat to 375 and reline the baking sheet with foil. Place the squash back on the baking sheet and put it back into the oven for 20 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil for another 3-5 minutes, until bubbling (keep watch as all ovens run different temps). Top with extra fresh chopped basil
  • Let cool for 5 minutes before cutting through the tops and scooping out each portion
  • *I reheated leftovers of this for lunch and it was great.

  1. Wow. Some comments can be pretty nasty. I keep a motto, if I don’t like what I see, I’m sure the person doesn’t care to hear any negativity, and I’m not one to spread negative thoughts, so I just keep it to myself. Really, people can be pretty hurtful. I remember my first rude comment. A while back when I posted a picture of myself in the gym, and someone basically told me to “go eat a sandwich” I couldnt’ help myself. I posted myself eating a giant burger with the title, “I like sandwiches, but these big ass burgers are better”. Maybe that was the wrong thing to do, but girl, I eat what I want and I workout. End of story. lol.
    Anyway, that’s a lot of blabble. I really like all of your recipes, your blog rocks which is why I share your awesome recipes with my readers. Have a wonderful day Sharon!

    1. Thanks Karen. Isn’t it surprising how much effort people will make to be negative? I really appreciate YOU for all of the positivity you bring. And as far as eating a sandwich? All that person needs to do is check out your sites to see how you eat AND how hard you work to have the physique you do. Which is amazeballs, by the way. 😉 Lots of love to you Karen!!! xxoo
