It's SUPER easy to make this recipe vegetarian. Simply sub out the beef for extra veggies! Bell peppers, spinach, and red onions would all be great additions.

- Fill each spaghetti squash with beef mixture and top with cheeses. Return to oven to melt cheese, 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
