Who doesnít love pasta?! I know I do! But sometimes itís easy to get carried away with excess servings, and your meal can quickly add up in calories and carbs. So I wanted to share a dish you can make that gives you that pasta fix without feeling guilty afterwards. Plus, youíre making all your noodles veggie based, so itís not only healthy but very affordable too!


  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • Tomato Sauce/ Marinara (optional)
  • Grape Tomatoes (optional)
  • Chives (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit

Step 2

Wash and cut your squash in half, vertically

Step 3

Remove the seeds and place both pieces face-down on a foil lined baking sheet

Step 4

Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until soft/tender (you should be able to scrape the sides with a fork easily)

Step 5

Serve hot with homemade sauce, tomato slices, fresh herbs or simply a little salt & pepper to your desired taste!

I've only fixed spaghetti squash once and it was very good. I guess I just find it time consuming.

JOHN W: It is squash. It is NOT SPAGHETTI. The type of squash is spaghetti. Since you mentioned it, I'm at a total loss on how you can choke eating spaghetti. Unless of course you are inhaling it. In which case, it's your fault and not the spaghetti's. Don and I CAN! :-))

LAURA J: Copy, paste and print. If you don't know how, ask one of your children to show you how. My grand children taught/showed me. Don and I CAN! :-))
