The Vegetarian Bake for When You're Craving Burritos

This savory casserole has all the elements of a rich, hearty Southwestern meal but tastes and feels much lighter thanks to its spaghetti squash base. The recipe has a smart trick too, wherein you roast the squash in a baking dish and, when it's tender, shred it and mix it with tomatoes, beans, scallions, seasonings and cheese—right in the very same dish (hello, easy cleanup). Slide it into the oven until the top is bubbly and the cheese is melted, and serve with sour cream for a meal that tastes way more indulgent than it really is.
