Foodie Friday: Spaghetti Squash


In a effort to eat healthier this year I’ve switched from making regular pasta for dinner to making spaghetti squash. I really like it but it doesn’t quite satisfy me like regular pasta, I think because it is not quite as filling. Never the less the flavor is good.

The good thing is that they are really simple to cook.


  1. Pre-heat over to 400
  2. Scrub squash and cut in half
  3. Scrape out the seeds – if you have one a grapefruit spoon works well but a regular spoon will work also.
  4. In a small bowl combine olive oil, salt and pepper. Brush mixture over the inside and rim of both halves of the squash.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes until tender.
  6. Let cool before using a fork a fork to pull spaghetti squash strands.
  7. Top with sauce of your choice.
Fresh from the oven!
Pulling the strands.
Tomato-basil sauce with butter.
Avocado Pasta Sauce

I have also put homemade pesto on spaghetti squash, I don’t have a picture but it was probably my favorite. Have you ever made spaghetti squash before? What is your favorite sauce to put on spaghetti sauce?

  1. I love squash as a pasta replacement. I bought a spitalizer and use zucchini. Takes a minute to spiral it and then I eat it raw with hot spaghetti sauce over it. Cooking it makes it limp and less nice imo. Quick and easy!
