Ingredients
  1. 1 large spaghetti squash
  2. 2 lbs ground beef, ground turkey, or ground lamb
  3. 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped (can substitute freeze dried cilantro)
  4. 1 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
  5. 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  6. 2 cups pasta sauce (see recipe below). Can substitute with your favorite sauce.
  7. 2 tablespoons + ¼ cup coconut oil, melted. (Olive oil works fine too)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove the seeds and pulp. Place the squash cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. You want the squash to be soft but not cooked all the way through. Once the squash is soft, scoop it out of its shell and toss with the ¼ cup of coconut oil.
  2. While the squash is cooking, add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to a large frying pan and melt over medium heat. Brown the 2 pounds of ground beef/turkey/lamb. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix the cheeses together.
  4. To assemble casserole: Use a medium sized casserole dish and layer half of the squash, then all of the browned meat, sprinkle with the chopped cilantro, pour half of the sauce over the top, and half of the cheese. Add the remaining half of the squash, the remaining half of the sauce, and the remaining half of the cheese. Cover and cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover and cook another 15 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned around the edge. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve with your favorite bread.
