Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

2 1/4 pound spaghetti squash
1 pound ground round
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning

1 egg
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
olive oil
1 24 oz jar pasta sauce (flavor; your choice)
1- 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

Cut the spaghetti squash in half and discard seeds. Bake the squash cut side down on a greased baking sheet at 400 degrees for about 1 hour or till tender. Cool 10 minutes and then scrape inside of squash to remove spaghetti like strands. Set aside.

Combine ground round, onion, parsley, Italian seasoning, breadcrumbs,egg, and parmesan cheese. Shape into 2 " size meatballs, Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or till done.

Cook garlic in olive oil about 1 minute, stirring. Add pasta sauce, diced tomatoes and the cooked meatballs. Heat till combined and meatballs heated through.

Microwave squash covered with plastic wrap at HIGH for 3 minutes.

Stir the fresh basil into the sauce. Serve sauce over the spaghetti squash. 6 servings

You are welcome! We grew lots last year in our garden and still have 3 or 4 more to use! I have a large roll around wire basket that I keep my potatoes, onions and vegetables like spaghetti and butternut squash in. Since it is down in the garage that stays 55 degrees year round it is almost like having a cold storage!
