Thank you to Shop Rite for the amazing quality of short ribs and the other ingredients to make this perfect dish.

I like to remove the meat form the bone and make the sauce a little thicker before serving.  You can omit that part and just skim the fat off the top and serve as is.  Sometimes I serve them in tact and other times I remove the meat!  It's up to you!  Either was this is an amazing dish and totally worth the wait.

I used some of my favorite ingredients and cookware - I just love my Le Creuset Dutch Oven, Tomatoes and Olive oil from D&D Market, dried herbs from Simply Organic and I adore my Salt Pig!

Really Big Loaded Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

My disclaimer for this recipe! I am Italian and during the holidays especially I make everything BIG!  What if unexpected guests stop by!  What if family brings a friend!  What if I ran into someone at the grocery store and they are home alone for a holiday (that has really happened).  

These are some of the reasons there is always an extra dish waiting in the refrigerator on stand-by or when I make a dish - It's really BIG and LOADED with lots of good stuff.

Note!

  • You can make this really big lasagna and left overs are amazing!
  • You can cut ingredients in half to make an 8x10 size pan.
  • You can omit the ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan to make it dairy free
  • You can make the meat sauce, cut the recipe in half and freeze the remaining sauce for another time.

Spaghetti Squash Marinara Meatball Nests

During Blizzard Colbie I was home making a bunch of new recipes and after reviewing what I had in the freezer it was exciting to find a container of mini-meatballs and sauce that I made a few weeks ago. I always make extra meatballs and freeze some for later.  This came it very handy.

We were inviting some neighbors over and we all love spaghetti squash and since we were doing a buffet style dinner I decided to do individual servings of spaghetti squash with a mini-meatball nestled inside and it was a hit!  Our friends son Austin took the rest home!  I just love cooking for friends and family.  Make me so happy..  Not to mention we love having company and there were a few bottles of wine opened and the fire was going.  Then we all enjoyed watching our dogs playing in the snow!  

I am thankful and grateful everyday for all of the wonderful people in our lives.

If you don't have any sauce handy you can make it fast and easy - recipe here!
