These homemade spaghetti squash lasagnas are a great way to make use of broken noodles in a healthy portion-control dinner. The dish layers a small single-serve lasagna inside a spaghetti squash for added flavor and unique presentation.

The recipe by Dine and Dish calls these mini lasagnas Lasagna Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats named after the shape of the gourd. Rather than baking the noodle dish inside a pan the noodles, cheese, meat and tomato sauce is layered directly inside a hollowed out spaghetti squash. This is a great way to make use of broken lasagna noodles as the spaghetti squash is small and requires tinier pasta to fill it. This dish is also a great way to avoid doing clean up as the recipe is cooked and eaten all inside the gourd.
