Spaghetti Squash


Ahhhhh another Thursday night save by the spaghetti squash.

Isn’t the spaghetti squash is just a gem of a vegetable? Well then again, i haven’t met a squash i didn’t instantly love. If I recall, I discovered it not long after Mr. B and I got married and it has been a staple in our diets ever since. I think I make an effort to pick one up about every other month or so.

So easy! I mean I’m talking reallllyyyyy easy. Slice it in half, remove a few seeds, pop it in the microwave about 5-10 minutes. After it’s heated, take a fork and scrape the insides of the squash as it falls out like spaghetti. The rest is totally up to you. Red sauce, carbonara, olive oil and spices….endless possibilities and all within a flash. Tonight I added organic ground chicken, fresh baby spinach leaves, fresh basil leaves and some Paul Newmans organic marinara, topped with shredded mozzarella cheese.

It gets better…..check out the nutrition vs. regular pasta here. Thank me later!

Have you ever tried spaghetti squash? If not, what’s stopping you?



  1. We’ve tried it once, before we had kids and Randy said it was the worst thing he’s ever eaten! I thought it was ok. Maybe I should try again, maybe Eva would like it 🙂

  2. This sounds really interesting. Unfortunately my other half doesn’t like squash very much at all, so won’t get an opportunity to try it : (
    I’ve also heard of courgette spaghetti, have you tried that? That one could be a trier!

    1. Hmm I have never had courgette spaghetti. Now you have me really curious. I will need to google. I think that you should try it and not tell him that it’s squash. Make it just like spaghetti to see what he thinks. 😉 Psssttt ill never tell.

      1. That may be a plan.. he’s got like some sixth sense with it – the same with parsnips – can tell they’re in food a mile away. But it’s worth a shot!
