Spaghetti Squash Sausage Lasagna Boats

If you’re craving something decadent and delicious without overdoing the calories, you’ll love these delicious spaghetti squash boats filled with everything you love about lasagna – chicken sausage, tomato sauce, ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.

I even used whole milk mozzarella cheese because I wanted it to melt nice, I just used it in moderation. The whole thing is way under 300 calories and 8 points plus if you’re on Weight Watchers, and it’s filling! It’s also gluten free – if you prefer to use part-skim mozzarella, the WW Points would be 7 pp.

Spaghetti squash when cooked has a lot of liquid, so I find it helpful to place it in a colander over paper towels to help get red of the excess moisture and it works perfectly.

You can prep this ahead of time, then put it on the oven just before you’re ready to bake. If you happen to only find large spaghetti squash, you can place the mixture in a 9×9 baking dish instead of the shells. Enjoy!!

Sodium: 701 mg • Cholesterol: 71 mg

Ingredients:

  • 3 small to medium spaghetti squash (about 5 cups cooked)
  • salt and fresh pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley (or basil)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk shredded mozzarella cheese

For the sauce:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 14 oz Italian chicken sausage
  • 14 oz (1/2 can) crushed tomatoes (I prefer Tuttorosso) 
  • salt and fresh pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil

Directions:


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and membrane. Season lightly with salt and black pepper; bake about 1 hour, or longer if needed on a baking sheet, cut side down. 
If you prefer the microwave, cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds and fibers and place on a microwave safe dish and cover. Microwave 8-9 minutes or until soft.


In a small bowl combine the ricotta cheese, 2 tbsp parmesan cheese and parsley.


In a large deep sauté pan, heat oil and add onions and garlic; sauté on medium-low for about 3 to 4 minutes, until soft. Add the sausage and cook, breaking up into smaller pieces until browned and cooked through. When cooked, add the crushed tomatoes and adjust salt and pepper to taste. Add the bay leaf and cover, reducing heat to low. Simmer 20 to 30 minutes, then add in fresh basil at the very end.


When spaghetti squash is cooked, let it cool for about 10 minutes keeping the oven on. If you microwaved this, preheat the oven to 400°F.

When the spaghetti squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to remove flesh, which will come out in spaghetti looking strands reserving the shells. Drain the squash on a paper towel to soak up any excess liquid, then toss with half of the sauce. Place the spaghetti squash back into the 6 shells and place on a baking sheet.

Top each with remaining sauce, 1 tbsp ricotta cheese mixture, and 2 tbsp mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes or until everything is hot and the cheese is melted.

Turkey Italian Sausage and Ricotta Lasagna Roll Ups

Turkey Italian Sausage and Ricotta Lasagna Roll Ups

by Pam on October 21, 2012

My best friend flew in for the weekend and I wanted to make a simple yet comforting meal to greet her with.  I decided on lasagna roll ups with turkey Italian sausage and and ricotta cheese.  They were fairly simple to make and they tasted fantastic… they were a big hit with all of us especially my dear friend.   These roll ups are a great recipe to serve dinner guests because they always turn out delicious and they look beautiful.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Remove the turkey Italian sausage from the casing then add it to the pan.  Add the crushed fennel seed and crushed red pepper flakes to the sausage.  Break up the meat using a potato masher and cook until crumbly and cooked through, about 5 minutes.  Add the minced garlic, and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from the heat and let cool.

Preheat the oven 350 degrees.

Cook lasagna noodles per instructions then lay them out on top of some parchment paper.

Combine the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, egg, nutmeg, basil, parsley, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a large bowl; mix until well combined.  Spoon a thin layer of the ricotta mixture down the entire length of the lasagna noodle. Repeat with the remaining noodles.  Next, place spoonfuls of the turkey sausage on top of the ricotta; repeat with the remaining noodles. Starting from one end, roll up.  Repeat.

Coat a baking dish with cooking spray then spoon a layer of the marinara sauce in the bottom of the baking dish.  Place the lasagna rolls, seam side down, into the baking dish.  Cover each roll with sauce then add a bit of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese to the top of each roll.

Cover with tin foil, and cook for 15 minutes.  Remove the tin foil and continue baking for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy.
