I am doing a happy dance right now.
I know you can't see me and will just have to take my word for it...but it's really happening and...it's spectacular.
I should really be on stage.
The reason for my happy dance is that I made this delicious, cheesy, tomatoey, squashy, side dish that tastes amazingly decadent yet is only 100 calories per serving.
Anytime I can eat delectable food plus have it be healthy and good for me is a time to celebrate.
Cheesy Tomato and Spaghetti Squash Bake
4 cups cooked spaghetti squash
2 medium tomatoes
1 cup shredded cheese (Kraft mixed mozza-cheddar light)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9 X 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
Spread a heaping cup of squash on the bottom of the pan.
Top with half of the tomatoes, sliced medium thin.
Sprinkle with spices. Top with 1/2 cup of the shredded mixed cheese.
Layer another heaping cup of squash on top of the cheese. The remaining tomato slices, a little more spices, and remaining 1/2 cup of shredded mixed cheese.
Top with remaining squash.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, let sit for 2 minutes before slicing. This makes 6 servings.

Only good things will come of making this dish. Unless, of course, you have allergies to any of the ingredients. Then...bummer....that is bad news...
