Spaghetti Squash with Garlic

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 1 hour 15 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 2 spaghetti squash (2 pounds each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, slivered
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Cook's Note

Holding squash half over a wide bowl, use a fork to scrape the flesh into long, thin strands.


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. With a fork, prick squash in several places. Place on a rimmed baking sheet; bake until soft to the touch, about 1 hour.

  2. Step 2

    When cool enough to handle, halve squash crosswise. Scoop out seeds; discard. Scrape flesh into strands.

  3. Step 3

    In a large skillet, heat oil over low heat. Add garlic; cook until fragrant and just starting to color, about 5 minutes. Add squash; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until squash is very hot, about 5 minutes.

    Mix with pasta ( angel hair or spaghetti ) for a healthier pasta with less calories.

    Very good, though I was surprised by how much I got out of one squash. They contain more than expected.

    This is also great if you also toss in some parmesian cheese!
