Cheesy-Peasy Spaghetti Squash

From Hungry Girl

Ingredients

1 spaghetti squash (about 4.5lb)
1 stick light string cheese
1 1/2 cups frozen petite mixed vegetables
4 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1 tbsp reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Microwave whole squash for 3 to 4 minutes, until soft enough to cut. Halve lengthwise; scoop out and discard seeds. Fill a large baking pan with 1/2 inch water and place squash halves in the pan, cut sides down. Bake until tender, about 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor – blend at high speed until shredded (or pull into shreds and roughly chop).

Use a fork to scrape out squash strands. Place in a strainer to drain excess moisture. Blot dry, if needed. Transfer to a large bowl and cover to keep warm.

Microwave frozen veggies in a microwave-safe bowl for 2 minutes. Stir well. Microwave for 1 minute, or until hot. Drain any excess water, and transfer veggies to the bowl with the squash strands. In a small microwave-safe dish, microwave cheese wedges for 20 seconds, or until hot. Add to the large bowl along with shredded string cheese and cheddar cheese. Stir until cheese have melted and are well mixed.

Serve sprinkled with Parm-style topping
