  • Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds and fibers and place on a microwave safe dish. Using a knife poke 6 holes in each half and cover. Microwave 11-12 minutes or until soft.
  • Meanwhile, in a large deep sauté pan, melt butter and add oil. Add onions, celery and carrots and sauté on medium-low for about 3 to 4 minutes, until soft.
  • Add the beef and season with salt. Brown the meat and cook, breaking it into smaller pieces with your spoon until cooked through.
  • When cooked, add the tomatoes and adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add bay leaf and cover, reducing heat to low. Simmer at least 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • While sauce is simmering. Shred spaghetti squash. When cool, use a fork to remove flesh, which will come out in spaghetti looking strands.
  • Keep covered and set aside keeping warm until sauce is ready. Serve topped with meat sauce and grated parmesan cheese, if desired.
