Description

The best way to eat everyone’s favorite squash? Spaghetti squash spaghetti! The noodles are sauteed with herbs, then topped with marinara and Parmesan.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (3 pounds)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter (or sub olive oil for vegan)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more to serve (or Vegan Parmesan Cheese)
  • Marinara sauce, to serve (use your favorite jarred sauce, or our Easy Marinara Sauce)
  • Protein, if serving as a main dish (Since squash isn’t as filling as normal noodles, you may want to serve with meat, lentils or another plant based protein. We served with goat cheese, bread, and a salad)

Instructions

  1. Cook the spaghetti squash: Make Roasted Spaghetti Squash or Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash.
  2. Mince the garlic.
  3. When the squash is cooked, heat a large skillet to medium low. Add the butter and olive oil and warm until melted. Add the garlic, oregano, basil, onion powder, and garlic powder. Warm, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes until garlic just starts to brown. Remove from heat and add squash noodles, kosher salt and grated Parmesan cheese. Toss until well combined. Taste, and add salt as necessary.
  4. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce and a bit more grated Parmesan cheese.
