Savor Spaghetti Squash & Parmesan Cheese!

I’ve cooked with Spaghetti Squash for years, and one of the easiest side dishes that I love to prepare is really so very simple to make!

Cut the squash in 1/2 and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Allow to cool and take a fork and scrape the squash away from the sides to create strands of squash.

Add 3/4 – 1 cup fresh parmesan cheese and 2-3 small chopped tomatoes.

Add sea salt and white pepper; mix and serve.

I think it’s the tastiest side dish on a beautiful summer’s (almost fall) night, like we had the other night with BBQ chicken and fresh zucchini from the garden.

Make sure you microwave right before it’s time to serve. It tastes much better nice and hot! And we also love spaghetti sauce served over spaghetti squash, with fresh parmesan and basil. Oh, my!

Do you have a favorite spaghetti squash recipe?

(How about the corn and the peach salsa? Recipes to come … stay tuned!)

  2. I had spaghetti squash for the first time last fall and thought it was incredible. Now that fall has officially begun I found myself craving it again. Needles to say I was thrilled when I saw your recipe for it. Thank you for sharing can’t wait to try this one out!

  3. I’ve only had this meal once and it was years ago. The first picture though is absolutely mouth watering. And even though I’ve already had dinner, I’m hungry already.

  4. Sounds so good! I can’t wait to try it and am looking forward to the other recipes as well!

  5. While grocery shopping yesterday Kaitlynn asked me to buy a spaghetti squash because she wanted to make it one night. It’s sitting on my counter waiting to be cooked up

  6. Ooohhh…I can’t believe I’ve never cooked spaghetti squash before. I love summer squash and use it all the time in my kitchen. I’m going to give this one a try too!

  7. Thanks for reminding me, I haven’t made spaghetti squash in awhile! I also like to use it like spaghetti with some marinara sauce yum!

  9. I love the ease and versatility of spaghetti squash. It’s pretty fun to make, too! I will definitely be trying your version. My favorite way to prepare it is Spaghetti Squash with Spinach, Feta, Basil & White Beans.

  10. We LOVE spaghetti squash at our house! Our favorite way is to do a white wine and butter sauce, its sooooo easy and super easy.

  11. Sometimes, I like to make spaghetti squash and serve it with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese, just like spaghetti!

  12. It’s funny that most people equate an easy dish with the fastest possible dish. It’s like, 30 minutes in the oven, that’s too long! But you throw it in the oven, then while you’re setting the table and working on the rest of the meal, it’s done before you know it.

  13. I’ve never made it but would love to someday- I’d ask for it here but seriously, one time I asked for a regular pumpkin at the market and I had a parade of squashes from all corners of the building before someone figured out the American wanted an orange one (there is one word for all squashes).

  14. I love making spaghetti squash and really don’t know why I don’t make it more often! So simple!
    HUGS!
