MOZZERALLA ARTICHOKE SQUASH

MOZZERALLA ARTICHOKE SQUASH

Ingredients
  • 1 spaghetti squash, seeded
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onions
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 3 ounces less fat cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 3 cups packed baby spinach
  • 1 1/4 cups canned artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley
Instructions
  1. Place the spaghetti squash in a microwave safe dish, cut side up. Pour about half an inch of water in the dish, then cover with plastic wrap and microwave until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly, then with a fork, scrape up the strings from the squash.

  2. Meanwhile, in a pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, 5-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 60 seconds. Add in the sour cream, cream cheese and half of the parmesan cheese and stir until the cream cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the spinach and artichoke hearts and cook until the spinach has wilted. Pour half of the mixture into each spaghetti squash half and gently pull up on the spaghetti squash strings to combine with the sauce as much as possible. Top with the shredded mozzarella and the remaining parmesan. Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.  

  3. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, if desired, and serve hot.
