Spaghetti Squash is one of those foods most people do not think of too often. They should though, the flavor is immense, and the nutrition speaks for itself.
1. Spaghetti Squash with Kale and Chickpeas
This recipe calls for roasted Spaghetti Squash and then mix it with garlic, lemon juice, a little Rosemary and some Olive Oil.
You will then saute some kale and chickpeas, toss and have a delightful dish that was hardly no work at all.
2. Oven Baked Spaghetti Squash
There is nothing more comforting than a big scoop of Squash on your plate when it is chilly outside.
This dish is so basic that it will fit any of those diets that are happening. The Whole 30, Keto, Vegetarian or gluten free. When you bake the Spaghetti Squash, you will get some crispiness to some of the strands that make this even better. A dollop of butter or a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese and it is dinner time.
3. Spaghetti Squash with Zucchini and a Creamy Goat Cheese Sauce
This makes the mouth water just reading the title. Combining together two favorites in Spaghetti Squash and zucchini and then mixing it with a combination of Parmesan and Goat Cheese.
This is heaven in a dish! Mix in some pine nuts and some herbs and it is good to go.
4. Garlic Pickled Spaghetti Squash
This recipe will enable you to have squash year round if you want it. It is super tasty, healthy and smack full of delicious garlic and herbs.
Once this has been pickled, it makes an excellent slaw for those delightful pulled pork sandwiches. The Spaghetti Squash does not lose that crispness when it is pickled, just like cabbage, it only gets better.
5. Grilled Spaghetti Squash
Did you know that Spaghetti Squash makes a perfect pasta replacement in some of your favorite recipes?
This dish is one where it is so simple you will make it often. Simply cut the squash in half, scoop out those seeds, add a little salt and pepper and set them on the grill to cook.
Once they are tender, scrape out the squash and mix it with chopped peppers, and some parsley. You could top this with some shredded cheese or a sprinkle of Parmesan.
6. Jalapeno Popper Spaghetti Squash
A healthier version made possible with the use of Greek Yogurt rather than cream cheese. This is an exciting take on a loaded baked potato, but even better, in my opinion.
Once you bake the squash, simply mix it with chopped peppers, Greek Yogurt and shredded cheese. Toss in some chopped bacon, jalapeno slices and serve it up. This could easily become a family favorite.
7. Baked Spaghetti Squash with Marinara
The delightful aroma of Italian foods is one of my favorites.
This baked Spaghetti Squash mixed with a crusty layer of Parmesan Cheese bread crumb topping and twirled in marinara, will make the perfect meal in the evening.
A few herbs and spices give this the flavor of Italy.
8. Creamy Pesto with Spaghetti Squash
This is one of those perfect dishes to serve alongside your favorite meat, or as a meal itself. For me, I love the flavor of pesto and although I am not a big fan of most squashes, this is the one I will keep handy at all times.
I love the mild flavor this provides alongside the pesto. With the addition of a few seasonings, very basic, you have a delightful dish.
9. Thai Peanut and Broccoli Spaghetti Squash
There are times that I truly surprise myself with some of the foods I think about. This time, I am not surprised, I am ecstatic!
This originally was meant to be a fun take on Thai Peanut and Broccoli. I fell in love with it though. I baked up the squash, made peanut sauce and broccoli and put it together. It is a phenomenal dish.
10. Spaghetti Squash Soup with Sausage
Combining Sweet Italian Sausage with the subtle taste of spaghetti squash and mixing in a couple of other vegetables with some great tasting broth that sticks to the spaghetti.
The onions, kale, tomatoes and carrots along with the Spaghetti Squash turns a plain soup into a yummy meal.
11. Cheesy Twice Baked Spaghetti Sauce
No carbs, vegetable filled Spaghetti Squash combined with juicy chicken, and a four cheese mix makes this one of the best meal ideas yet! This is a great side dish for your choice of protein, or could even be a perfect meal in itself.
This is one of those great dishes to keep in the front of your mind. Spaghetti Squash takes on the flavors of the foods it is mixed with and makes for yummy!
12. Greek Style Spaghetti Squash with Shrimp
A slightly natural buttery taste combined with olives and the feta that is salty brings together the bed of a meal to hold the shrimp. Toss this in with some chopped tomatoes, onion and minced garlic with onion to bring together a dish like you never expected.
The best of each taste is in this dish, the textures, the sweet and the salty.
13. Roasted Spaghetti Squash with a Parmesan Butter
This is the taste you are searching for! This dish is simple, basic and most importantly tasty as all get out!
What makes this such a treat is that you will steam the squash first and then you are going to roast it so it gets a slight crunch to the strands. Not all the strands, just a few. Then toss the hot spaghetti squash in a mix of melted butter and grated Parmesan cheese. Top with additional shredded parmesan and you are all set.
14. Spaghetti Squash with Kale, Sausage and Sun Dried Tomatoes
Sausage and kale together is a classic combination of two opposite foods that make miraculous flavors. Then you combine these flavors with the subtlety of Spaghetti Squash and when they come together, they explode into an amazing taste. The great part about this is that it is filling without making you feel too full.
15. Crispy Spaghetti Squash
This recipe puts a spin on the way Spaghetti Squash is supposed to look. This one can be a little more time consuming, but you can make a shortcut by tossing the chunks of spaghetti in a bag with Olive oil and then tossing them with a mix of nutritional yeast, salt and paprika.
Then simply roast them at 425*. This is easier to do if you cut the squash lengthwise first, then cut each half into half again. Peel the skin and cut the squash into cubes.
16. Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Speaking of two of the best flavors together, this one is it. Spaghetti Squash in this recipe is a dump recipe. That is what I call it.
I throw the ingredients into a slow cooker and let them cook together. Once the ingredients are all cooked, they can be stirred together and drizzled with extra sauce. Be sure to shred the chicken to combine all this together.
17. Spaghetti Squash Fritters
Fritters are a popular food in the United States and in most other countries. Fritters are not a difficult food item to make.
There are just a few ingredients but once done, it makes for some very big flavor. Once you scoop these up and bake them for a short time. The aroma is astounding.
18. Spaghetti Squash Pizza Crust
A low carb pizza crust that will change your life.
The crust is mixed with eggs and salt. Mix it well and form it to a crust shape. Bake it and then topped with pizza sauce and whichever toppings you deem is needed. This includes a cheese that is made with Cashew nuts, which is also an outstanding flavor for this recipe for pizza.
19. Spaghetti Squash Egg in a Hole
This is one of those that you would not imagine as being tasty. Of course, there are many who think that spaghetti squash is not for them. Spaghetti Squash is a very versatile food, healthy and tasty and can be used for any meal.
A simple enough meal that can be somewhat prepped ahead of time. Make a nest from your spaghetti squash and place it in a skillet with an egg in the center of the nest. These can also be made in a muffin tin and baked until the egg is cooked. You end up with an egg breakfast with a slight crunch, buttery flavor and makes for a quick on the go meal.
20. Easy Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash Bowls
Loaded with the favorites of a Mediterranean dish such as Feta cheese, red roasted peppers, artichokes, olives and garlic. This turns into a simple to make, very colorful dish and can be served right in the halves of the Spaghetti Squash.
All you need to do is roast the spaghetti squash, fluff it with a fork when it is done. Then toss in the mentioned ingredients and drizzle with olive oil and Feta cheese. This leaves you with a full tummy.
21. Spaghetti Squash Quiche
This dish is entirely gluten free and once the squash is cooked, it is pressed into a quiche pan or pie pan and then baked. Once the baking is done, you can fill it with your choice of steamed vegetables, eggs and of course cheese. Then you bake it for another short time to cook the whole thing together. Slice and serve and enjoy a healthy breakfast or lunch for a lazy weekend.
The crust will have that special crunch a quiche is meant to have and you can change up the types of vegetables you add to make it your type of special.
