28 g Porcini Mushrooms
1 cup Apple Juice
3 kg Spaghetti squash
2 tbsp Olive Oil
4 cloves Garlic, minced
454 g Cremini mushrooms sliced
43 g All Purpose Flour
2 tsp Dried basil
0.5 tsp Salt
1 ml Nutmeg
2 cups Milk
1 cup Grated parmesan
2 cups Part-skim shredded mozzarella
3 med Plum tomato thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Crumble dried mushrooms in a medium bowl. Add apple juice and let soak 10 min. Use a knife to make small slits all over the surface of squash. Place each in a glass pie plate.
  2. Microwave on high, turning squash over halfway through, until tender, 12 to 15 min. Slice in half lengthwise. Let stand 10 min. Scoop out and discard seeds. Use the tines of a fork to scrape out squash strands. Reserve.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add oil, garlic and cremini mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms soften and liquid evaporates, about 8 min. Add flour, basil, salt, nutmeg and soaked dried mushrooms and juice. Season with fresh pepper. Cook, stirring often, 1 min. Stir in milk. Cook until sauce thickens, 2 to 3 min. Remove from heat, then stir in mozzarella and squash strands.
  4. Scoop squash mixture into a 9 x 13-in. baking dish. Smooth top. Top with tomato slices. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake until bubbly, 15 to 20 min.
