Spaghetti Squash Cheese Bake

Recipe Shared by Rita
Serving Size : 4

1 small spaghetti squash
8 slices bacon
8 ounces grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Place skin side up in a baking dish and add about 1" of water. Bake until the skin begins to give, about 40 minutes. Carefully pour out the water. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a large skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble.

Using a large fork, scoop the squash out of its skin, pulling it into long strands. Place in a large mixing bowl. Combine with the bacon, cheese, and salt/pepper. Mix well.

Return the mixture to the baking dish and bake until the cheese melts, about five minutes. Serve hot.

NOTES : This was excellent, easy to make, very low-carb and inexpensive. I think it would make a very nice dish to bring to a potluck. I think it would be just as good, or better, with diced ham instead of bacon.
