Recently I have heard from a lot of readers wanting more vegetarian pasta dishes that utilize spaghetti squash instead of pasta. However in my opinion this can be a bit tricky because while it's easy to make something delicious, it's hard to make sure there is enough protein to truly satisfy as a main dish. Using vegetarian proteins is one solution to this problem. In this recipe, I used vegetarian crumbles to make a simple spaghetti squash, garlic, kale, and Parmesan cheese pasta dish that's low in calories but high in protein.

Prepare the spaghetti squash: Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Roast cut side down on a baking sheet for 40-45 minutes until tender. Alternatively, pierce the squash with a knife all over. Microwave for 10-12 minutes until tender. Carefully cut in half and scoop out seeds.

Meanwhile, brown the crumbles in a pan until warmed through. Add the kale and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes.

Add the broth and scrape up any browned bits in the pan. Cover and cook for 6-8 minutes until kale is tender.

4

Add spaghetti squash to the pan and stir together. Top with Parmesan cheese and lemon juice.
