Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boat on plateI love spaghetti squash. It's easy to cook, has a great texture, swaps out a bunch of my favourite carb-heavy pastas, and is packed with awesome nutrients. Here, I've turned them into lasagna boats using my homemade tomato sauce. The alternating layers of squash, sauce, and cheese are so comforting. I used pepperoni sticks in the sauce because they give it the most amazing smoky flavour and smell. You can use any meat you like, or skip it and go vegetarian.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes

Yield: 4 servings




  1. Heat a couple teaspoons of oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add all the veggies and pepperoni, cook for 10 minutes until partially softened. Add the thyme, oregano and the can of tomato sauce. Stir well, then add enough water so it's level with all the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 35 minutes until the veggies are softened and the liquid has been absorbed.

  3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half. Remove all the seeds and save them for roasting for a snack at a later date.

I really like lasagna but I always find the pasta a bit rubbery. The squash has got to be a great swap for the pasta, texture wise, plus it would add an interesting flavor. This recipe is saved!
