Savory Spaghetti Squash
Serves 8

1 large spaghetti squash
3 large carrots, diced
2 large celery stalks, diced
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
4 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 pound of fresh tomatoes, crushed
cayenne pepper (to taste)
2 Tablespoons dried basil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon oregano
1 pound of organic, whole milk mozzarella cheese
½ pound of whole milk parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the spaghetti squash lengthwise and place on a cooking sheet; bake for about 45 minutes or until the squash is tender. While the squash is baking, dice the carrots, celery, onion and bell peppers. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan and add the diced carrots, celery, onion and bell peppers. Saute for about 10 minutes on medium-high heat. Add tomatoes, cayenne pepper, basil, garlic and oregano.

When spaghetti squash is done, remove from the oven and cool. When it is cooled, scrape out the edible squash part and leave the skins. Place the squash in the bottom of a large baking dish. Add the cooked tomato and vegetable mixture to the top of the squash. Top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
