Prep Time:1 Minutes
Cook time:1 Minutes

1 3-pound spaghetti squash, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 15-ounce container ricotta
1 large egg
4 cups baby spinach, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups grated mozzarella (1/2 pound)
kosher salt and black pepper


Heat oven to 400° F. Place the squash on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle the cut sides with the oil, place cut-side down, and roast until tender, 40 to 50 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the ricotta, egg, spinach, garlic, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon salt, and ? teaspoon pepper.

With a fork, gently scrape out the strands of flesh and add to the ricotta mixture. Mix gently to combine.

Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish, sprinkle with the mozzarella, and bake until browned and bubbling, 18 to 22 minutes.
