Spice up your life with this tasty and healthy Mexican spaghetti squash casserole.


Face it.

We all need a Mexican-food fix sometimes and this recipe for spaghetti squash casserole will satisfy your craving without wrecking your diet.

And here’s something else: It’s a cinch to make!


4 1/2 cups cooked spaghetti squash

1 can Rotel

1/4 cup green pepper, chopped

1.25 pounds 93% lean ground beef

2/3 cup shredded 2% reduced fat Mexican style cheese

1/2 cup 2% plain Fage Greek yogurt

1/2 cup red enchilada sauce

3 tbsp reduced fat cream cheese

1/2 tsp chili powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In medium sized bowl, combine enchilada sauce, Greek yogurt, cream cheese and chili powder; stir until combined.

(It is okay if the mixture is a little lumpy from the cream cheese. The cream cheese will melt when combined with the warm ground beef and spaghetti squash.)

Over medium-high heat, add ground beef, chopped green peppers and Rotel to a large skillet; cook until ground beef is no longer pink and green pepper is tender.

Drain fat and liquid.

Add spaghetti squash and enchilada sauce to the ground beef mixture; stir until combined.

Pour mixture into 9-inch casserole dish and top with Mexican style cheese.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
