This recipe doesn't use just any old cheese, though. I used Organic Valley Cheddar Cheese and Organic Valley Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. If you haven't tried Organic Valley Cheese yet, I highly recommend it!

Now, let's get down to the recipe nitty-gritty.  I prepare the meat for this stuffed squash like I do for my Philly steak sandwiches. I like to use a nice quality piece of steak that is sliced extra thin. (See the Notes section below for slicing tips.)

Instead of serving the beef sandwich style, this recipe introduces some better-for-you ingredients to the mix.

I stuffed the beef into a spaghetti squash shell along with some of my favorite ingredients that I picked up at Publix: earthy baby bella mushrooms, nutrient-packed spinach, oodles of garlic, and that fab Organic Valley Cheese.

How fun is that? I am a huge fan of anything served boat-style and the shape of the spaghetti squash is so perfect for stuffing with all kinds of goodies! The possibilities are seriously endless.

Go the Mexican route and stuff the baked squash with all of your fave taco fillings and Organic Valley Mexican Shredded Cheese or try an Italian twist and stuff it with Italian sausage and marinara sauce topped with melted Organic Valley Shredded Mozzarella Cheese and fresh basil.

I honestly don't think you can't go wrong with any stuffing you choose.

What will you stuff your squash with?


Garlic Steak and Cheddar Stuffed Spaghetti Squash





INGREDIENTS

1 lb ribeye steak
4 lb spaghetti squash
1 tablespoon Organic Valley Salted Butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
5 ounces fresh spinach, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
8 ounces Organic Valley Sharp Cheddar Cheese Block, shredded
2 ounces Organic Valley Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and place face down in a large baking dish.  Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of the dish.  Bake for 45 minutes, remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.

2. Meanwhile, heat the Organic Valley Butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook for 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the chopped spinach to the pan and continue cooking until the spinach is just wilted, about 1 minute. Transfer the mushrooms and spinach to a large bowl and set aside.

3. Using a sharp knife, slice the steak into very thin slices. Add the sliced steak and the garlic to the skillet and cook over medium-high heat for 4 minutes, or until the steak is no longer pink. Add the steak (including its juices) to the bowl with the mushrooms and spinach.

4. When the squash has cooled enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the flesh into spaghetti-like pieces, leaving about 1/4-inch  of the squash in the shell.  Place the squash into a colander to drain any excess liquid.  Add the squash, half of the Organic Valley Cheddar Cheese, and half of the Organic Valley Mozzarella Cheese to the bowl and mix well. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.

5. Place the squash shells back into the baking dish cut side up and spoon the steak and vegetable mixture into the shell. Top with the remaining shredded Organic Valley Cheddar Cheese and Organic Valley Mozzarella Cheese.

6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese is golden and melted. Garnish with fresh chopped chives.


NOTES

This recipe is best when the steak is sliced super thin before cooking. Placing the steak in the freezer for about an hour before slicing makes the job much easier.
