I serve this yummy casserole on lightly salted baked spaghetti squash. If you’ve never made spaghetti squash, don’t wait any longer. You need to do it. It’s such a fun veggie. You can also serve this as a dip like my sister did in the comments below!

See my post on How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash for an easy way to make spaghetti squash!

I added sheep cheese to this recipe, but if you need to keep it completely dairy free, feel free to leave it out. You can add an additional tablespoon of nutritional yeast to boost the cheesy flavor.

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an S meal.

  1. I can’t wait to try this one. A Spaghetti Squash is on our counter waiting to be made into something delicious and I think this is the recipe. Thanks again Robin.

    I made this Monday. I did not use spaghetti squash, but just ate it straight with a bit of Ranch dressing on top. We also put a spoon of it in a tortilla ‘dip’ chip and heated a bit of cheese on it. Just the right amount of spice. It may not be TMH by time I got through with it, but it was great for someone who doesn’t eat grains. 🙂

      Yay! I’m glad you’re making it work for you!

    Does this call for canned coconut milk or carton coconut milk?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      I use canned coconut milk. I’ll go in and update that info.
