Spaghetti Squash

Pin It

Spaghetti squash. The carbless and healthier alternative to spaghetti.

The great thing about it is that it practically has no flavor, so whatever you choose to put on it will take over. I've had it with regular marinara sauce and this picture is when I made it with pesto. If you don't have anything special on hand to put on top, it's also great with plain ol' butter, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Whenever I'm craving some pasta and choose to steer clear and be good, this is my back-up. It might not taste the same or have the same consistency, but if you really pretend, you can fool yourself. Enjoy!

This is what it looks like after you cut it in half and scrape the insides.
Printable Recipe


  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 cup pesto, or whatever sauce you desire

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Prick the squash all over with a knife. Bake in a preheated oven for 1 hour.

When cool enough to handle, cut the spaghetti squash in half. Scoop out the seeds and string from the center.

Gently scrape the insides of the spaghetti squash with a fork to shred into strands. 

Top with your favorite sauce and serve.
