Girls Night In: Spaghetti Squash “Pizza” Recipe (Gluten-Free)

I’ve already told you all about one of my favorite weekly traditions, Girls Night In. This week we made Spaghetti Squash “Pizza.” It was easy and inexpensive. In NYC it is normal to find a box of cereal for $5.50 so it is always wonderful to find a meal that is inexpensive to make (P.S. As any post grad knows, Trader Joe’s : Groceries :: Ikea : Furniture. That’s a SAT flashback right there. Please don’t send me your therapy bills.)

Spaghetti Squash Pizza Recipe

1. 1 Spaghetti Squash
2. 1 ball of Mozzarella (or two if you’re working on your night cheese)*
3. 1 teaspoon olive oil
4. Salt and pepper to taste
5. 1/4 cup tomato sauce

Extra Ingredients If You So Choose:
1. Tofu Pepperoni
2. Pepperoni
3. Bacon
4. Chicken
5. Mushrooms
6. Onions
7. Peppers
8. Basil
9. Eggplant
+ Whatever toppings your perfect pizza includes!

1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove and discard the seed. Place the squash on a baking sheet. Bake until tender (about 1 hour). Separate the strands of squash with a fork and place in a medium bowl. Maintain the oven temperature.
3. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
4. Pour the tomato sauce on the spaghetti squash.
5. Cut the mozzarella into slices and lay them on top of the spaghetti squash.

Groceries? Maybe. New shoes? Definitely.

I'm working on my night cheese.

**In the Supreme Court case, Jacobellis v. Ohio, Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart said he couldn’t describe or define pornography but stated in his concurring opinion, “I know it when I see it.” I was a Criminal Justice major and a paralegal. I have to throw in these fun facts.
