Italian Spaghetti Squash Recipe

This is a unique and easy way to cook spaghetti squash. Be sure the squash is on the small or medium side so that it fits into the slow cooker after being cut in half.—Melissa Brooks, Sparta, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 6-1/4 hours YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place squash, cut side up, in a 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker. Layer with mushrooms, tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until squash is tender.
