  • Summary

    This nutritious twist on lasagna uses spaghetti squash instead of pasta. Spaghetti squash has a mild, slightly sweet flavor and is packed with nutrients. The strands of squash are tossed with creamy ricotta cheese and chopped spinach. It’s then layered with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese and baked in the oven until it’s bubbling with cheesy goodness. Packed with protein and fiber, this dish will keep you feeling full and satisfied. It also has a hefty amount of iron and folate and almost half your daily calcium needs!
