That's all I have to say about this recipe.
Oh, come on you know that's not true - I'm going to go ON and ONNNN...cuz that's how I roll.
No, seriously. This is one of the best recipes I've made in a long time and I am FO SHO going to be keeping it handy and in rotation.
You've had Cracker Barrel hash brown casserole, right? I'm pretty sure it has it's own cult following. Warm, gooey, cheesy potatoes baked until crisp? Yah, that's the one.
Well, this my friends is your healthy substitution! This. Is. It!
AND it's only 6 main ingredients...what!??
Now, run along and go get these ingredients:
1 medium spaghetti squash
1 large shallot, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (you can also sub sour cream)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to season
Wash and cut your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds with a spoon.
Place it in your microwave, cut side up, and cook for 10-12 minutes...until softened.
Remove and let cool for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a small saute pan, melt butter and add shallot and garlic. Cook over medium heat until beginning to brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
Once the squash has cooled enough to handle, scrape the insides into a large bowl adding the rest of the ingredients except half of the cheese.
Spray a casserole dish with non-stick spray.
Spread the squash mixture into the dish and pat down so it's smooth.
Cover with remaining cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it begins to brown on top.
Remove from oven and let stand for about 5 minutes.
Cut and serve!
