RECIPE: Stuffed Spaghetti Squash


Spaghetti Squash (I cooked 2 for 4 servings)
Seasoning: Pepper, Salt, Oregano, Parsley, Paprika
Stuffing: Onions, Peppers, Garlic, Spinach, Ground Beef, Spaghetti Sauce, Cheese (parmesean)
2-4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

(feel free to switch up your seasonings and “stuffing” options!)


Prep: 30 minutes

Cook: 45 – 60 minutes

Total Time: approx 1 hour 20 minutes

Let’s Cook!

  1. Preheat Oven to 400º
  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half and scoop out guts (if you have trouble cutting the squash, microwave it for a minute or two to soften it)
    • Like a Pumpkin, you can actually roast the squash seeds and add those to the stuffing also 😉
  3. Coat cut side/inside of squash with olive oil
  4. Generously season the squash with oregano, parsely, salt, pepper, paprika, etc.
  5. Place on baking sheet cut side down (I use parchment paper or foil to line baking sheet to help with clean up)
  6. Bake for 45 min –  1 hour
  7. While squash is baking, prepare your stuffing.
    • chop & saute onions, peppers and garlic
    • cook ground beef (or use premade chicken) OR easily make this vegan/vegetarian by swapping in seitan or tempeh)
    • add spinach and let wilt
    • add spaghetti sauce of your choice
  8. When 1 hour is up, remove squash from oven
  9. Use two forks to gently separate strands of squash and to mix in the seasonings.
  10. Start filling with your stuffing & top with cheese (optional).
  11. Place back in oven for an additional 10-15 minutes until cheese has melted.
  12. Garnish with more parsely.
  13. ENJOY!!
