Flavorful, hearty, 10-ingredient Spaghetti Squash Lasagna bake with simple tofu ricotta and vegan Parmesan cheese! This plant-based meal adapted from minimalist baker is perfect for any time of year.
Although this recipe tastes like traditional lasagna, its nutritional profile is definitely more impressive. Whereas one cup of cooked spaghetti made from white, enriched noodles, contains approximately 220 calories, 42 grams of carbohydrates and very few nutrients, one cup of cooked spaghetti squash provides about 42 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, and a host of important nutrients such as vitamin A and potassium. In addition to that, this dish is packed with plant protein from the tofu ricotta filling and filling fiber from the squash. We highly suggest using spaghetti squash for a healthy alternative to any pasta dish! -Allegra Egizi
