Hi everyone, this is my very first instructable and it was a lot of fun to create this delicious dish. I call it the anti-pasta because it's made with spaghetti squash although you are welcome to use traditional spaghetti noodles if you desire. Spaghetti squash is delicious (not to mention healthy) and easy to make so I would encourage you to try it.

Here are the ingredients for this dish:
1 spaghetti squash
2 lb of grounded chicken or 2 chicken breast chopped up
8 ounces of mushrooms (1 package) sliced thick
1 tomato chopped
1 medium onion chopped
4 cloves of garlic minced (separate 1 chopped clove from the others)
1can of olives sliced
1 half inch slice of cheddar cheese cut into 20 mini 1/2 inch cubed
Italian seasoning
your favorite canned or homemade spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon of Knorr's wonton soup seasoning
sea salt
olive oil
parmesan cheese

(Some of the ingredients I used are shown in the pictures.)

Step 1: Cooking the Spaghetti Squash

Picture of Cooking the Spaghetti Squash
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Using a sturdy large knife cut squash lengthwise.  Cut off the stem as well.
3. Disgard seeds and the stringy gut of the squash. 
4. Place squash halves facing up into baking pan.  
5. Put pan in oven for 45-60 minutes. To tell if the squash is ready fork the meat of the squash all the way to the skin.  Fork should insert and put out easily.

Thank you so much for the comment. I confess that this is my first time making spaghetti squash and it's was surprisingly easy to make and a very hearty substitute for the traditional spaghetti noodles.

Yum! I always use spaghetti squash in place of pasta these days. I love that you added cheese to the middle of each of your meatballs!
