Stuffed Baked Spaghetti Squash

Stuffed Baked Spaghetti Squash

1-hour 20-Minute recipe Serves 4

    Meanwhile, heat a large pot over medium-high. Add beef. Cook until browned, about 5 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes.

    Add mushrooms, lentils and tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Set aside.

    When squash is finished roasting, turn on broiler. Flip squash over. Shred squash into long strands with a fork, leaving 1/4-in. border around edge. Transfer shredded squash to pot with beef mixture. Spoon beef mixture into squash bowls, then sprinkle with cheese and chives. Broil until cheese melts, about 2 to 3 minutes.
