so my first recipe using spaghetti squash was this caprese bake recipe, which i was super excited about because i love caprese salad! it was perfect because i wanted to make a vegetarian dinner and also wanted to engage my little one in our weekly family cooking time. dumping, mixing, scooping. all good fun and then – eating!

cut tomatoes into bite-size pieces. roughly cut basil and spinach leaves. place all of these ingredients, along with the olive oil, into the large bowl with the spaghetti squash. mix well, then season with salt & pepper to taste. stir in 1 cup of shredded mozzarella.
