Black Bean & Spaghetti Squash Casserole

I've wanted to share this recipe with you for over a year now.  I made it almost immediately after seeing it posted over at Debbi Does Dinner Healthy & Low Calorie when Debbi posted it last summer.  The reason I didn't post this then is because I lost my notes and it took me up until a couple of weeks ago to make the recipe again. 

Joe and I both really enjoy spaghetti squash.  We usually just eat it plain, straight out of the microwave.  Sometimes we add a little Morton's Hot Salt to spice it up a bit.  Now after making this, we'll be adding this meatless casserole to our menu plan more often! 

Black Bean & Spaghetti Squash Casserole

  • 3 cups spaghetti squash, cooked
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can Bush's Grilling Beans, Black Bean Fiesta
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, choppped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 small can diced chilies
  • 3 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs. chili powder
  • salt to taste
  • cooking spray
  • olive oil
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray 8"x8" casserole dish with cooking spray. 
  • In a small amount of oil, in a large skillet, saute onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic until tender.
  • Add black beans, corn, diced chilies, and chili powder, stir.
  • Cook until heated through.
  • Remove from heat. 
  • Add cooked squash and salt to taste.
  • Mix well, pour into the casserole dish.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.

  • I've made this a couple times, and both times, I've made slightly different. 
  • The original recipe calls for spinach.  It's great both with and without the spinach! 
  • Also, Debbi topped hers with a corn meal crust.  I prefer to serve cornbread on the side, but if you liked to try it with a crust on top, check out Debbi's recipe
