Sketti Squash Casserole

Trying to stay away from Christmas cookies? Me too! This cheesey casserole makes it easier. I made a Multiply Meals recipe tonight, so we will be able to have this another time too! This will freeze well, and will be greatly appreciated on another busy evening. This makes two large or three smaller casseroles.

I honestly don't why more people don't use spaghetti squash. The mild flavor works well with so many sauces. My hash brown casserole is great with this squash, as is this one with an Italian twist. If you think ahead and cook the squash early in the day, it goes together really fast.

I have all my guys home from school now, so there are lots of mouths to feed. It really helps to have as much done ahead as possible. Less time in the kitchen and more time with the famiy--that's always a good thing.

I love spaghetti squash, but find it inconsistent with how it cooks. I'm a lazy cook, so I like to bake the same way every time. But sometimes, it comes out mushy but not overdone, or watery. Or there are the ones that take over an hour to cook before you can start to shred, and never really get tender. Am I the only one who has this problem???

I have never found that to be too much of a problem, but I am not a big clock watcher. I usually use the jab test. Poke it with a fork, if it pierces, it is done enough for me. I did have an area near the stem of this one that seemed a little less tender. I just added them in and let the texture be a little different. Still yummy.

I have noticed a huge difference among pie pumpkins. Maybe since they are related, they share similar problems.
