Spaghetti Squash Recipe

I love spaghetti but I don't love how it makes me feel weighed down and tired, so I decided it's time to try some spaghetti squash!! I made this recipe and I couldn't be happier :) enjoy!

  • 2 whole spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 bottles organic marinara sauce or 4 cups homemade marinara sauce


Preheat oven to 450 degrees,
1.) Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, coat the pan with olive oil, cut the spaghetti squash lengthwise down the middle, remove the seeds. 

2.) Divide the olive oil between the 4 halves brushing the insides with olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper.

3.) Bake for about 35-40 minutes flesh side down.

4.) Being careful not to burn yourself remove the insides of the squash into a large pot, add the marinara sauce, and heat up just until hot. Serve with Parmesan or feta cheese! Enjoy!!

Notes: to remove the flesh of the squash I used a fork and a pasta spoon, it comes apart pretty easily, just start in the middle and work to the edges. Don't skimp on olive oil it's healthy! The thing I really like is this recipe doesn't use a microwave :D cutting the squash lengthwise is tricky because your squash will try to run away! So I used my hubby for that part lol!!
