Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Our mother needed a break today, as all mothers occasionally do. Audrey is cooking dinner, which terrifies me, and I am writing today’s blog post.


Tonight’s dinner is vegetarian spaghetti squash lasagna. This healthy lasagna is low-carb, reduced-calorie, paleo (depending on what marinara sauce and cheeses you use), “clean” (depending on your very subjective definition of “clean”), high-protein and veggie-packed! Hey, I think I hit all the buzzwords! Seriously, though, this lasagna is delicious but far far better for you than your usual starch- and fat-laden junk from Olive Garden or whatever.


The idea of spaghetti squash lasagna is not a new one, but given our great love for all things spaghetti squash and all things lasagna, we thought it would be appropriate to make our own recipe and share it with everyone.


Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Serves 3-4 hungry people


  • 3-4 cups cooked spaghetti squash (we microwaved the halved squash for about 8 minutes)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce (we used Francesco Rinaldi no-salt-added tomato sauce)
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese (we used Trader Joe’s Fat-Free Ricotta)
  • 1 oz or 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano, shredded
  • 6 oz or 1.5 cups mozzarella shreds (we used Lucerne Fat-Free Mozzarella, which has 9 grams of protein per ounce, about 50% more than regular mozzarella!)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Layer the spaghetti squash, marinara sauce, ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella in an oven-safe casserole dish, making sure that the topmost layer is a cheesy layer!
  3. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the foil and broil until the cheese bubbles.
  5. Eat!

  2. Hi Angela, you did a very good job writing this blog in Chinese and English! I like the life style of your family and hope you and your mum can share more healthy recipes, I am your loyal reader! 健康快乐!


  3. Nice try ladies! Actually this is kind new, I have never tried any lasagna without flour,it looks pretty good and healthy, I’m definitely gonna try it sometime. I wanted to learn how to cook when I was like 19 or something, but in China, its not considered as a “fancy” job, especially for girls,but I still cook, and I think my friends like it, lol.
    Angela, your Chinese totally makes sense,you can even make jokes with it, just keep trying, it will only get better. As for Andrey, look at the food you made , little chef, it’s amazing! I know I can’t try it, but it already brings out my appetite, I bet it is delicious!
    There is one thing though, we can’t really find all the different cheese you mentioned in the recipe,Chinese people don’t eat cheese a lot, so it would be easier for us if you just tell the brands, yeah.
    Keep posting, I will be following – Greetings from China
