  • 1 spaghetti squash halved lengthwise and seeds removed
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) water
  • 1 lb (454 g) lean ground beef
  • 2 cups (500 mL) sliced mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp (3 mL) Italian seasoning
  • 1 can CAMPBELL'S® Condensed Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped fresh basil


  1. Place the squash halves cut-side down in a casserole dish with water. Microwave on high for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. (Depending on the size of your microwave, you may have to cook in batches, checking for tenderness after 8 minutes.)  
  2. Scrape the flesh with a fork to separate the spaghetti-like strands. Season as desired and keep warm. (You will have about 6 cups of squash.) 
  3. Meanwhile, brown the meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking up with a spoon, for about 8 minutes. Drain off any fat. Add the mushrooms and garlic and Italian seasoning. Season as desired. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Reduce the heat to medium. Mix in soup and lemon juice; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  4. Spoon squash into pasta bowl. Spoon sauce over top. Sprinkle with cheese and basil. 

Recipe tips

  • Don’t have a microwave? Place the squash cut-side down on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 45 to 55 minutes or until tender. Proceed with the recipe as directed. 
  • Take care when you scrape the squash out that you protect your hands from the heat by wearing oven mitts or holding the squash with a tea towel
  • If you don’t have 1 large spaghetti squash, use 2 small ones instead.
