One bite of this veggie side dish and everyone at the table will be saying "This is My Favorite Spaghetti Squash!" If you're unfamiliar with spaghetti squash recipes, this is definitely the place to start. We've made this low-carb dish a little cheesy, a little creamy, and a lot flavorful, so that everyone at the table will enjoy!

What You'll Need

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Place spaghetti squash in a soup pot with an inch of water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 25 to 30 minutes, or until a knife can be inserted into the center. Remove from pot and cool slightly. Cut squash in half lengthwise, remove seeds, and using a fork, scrape out strands of squash.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 1-1/2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups squash and remaining ingredients; mix well. Place mixture in baking dish.
  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until browned on top and heated through.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have seen several recipes like this using spaghetti squash, but I am a bit hesitant to try new things. Do you have something you can compare the texture of the spaghetti squash to? I would love to use this vegetable as an alternative to spaghetti or pasta on a regular basis because we love to eat pasta in my home. How often do you use this to substitute for pasta? Has it helped lower your blood sugar levels?

I haven't tried this recipe yet, though it sounds like something I might like. Don't look to spaghetti squash purely as a substitute for pasta. It's much thinner than pasta, doesn't have the same body, texture or even the same taste. So, if you were to use it as a base for spaghetti sauce, you might be disappointed. However, this is a casserole type recipe, it has things like cheese and egg in it, you could also add other things like mushrooms, or onions, or grated and sauteed zucchini, etc. Start off with a casserole recipe like this, and you can gradually go from there, deciding what you like and what you don't. Hope this helps.

I am looking forward to making this as I love spaghetti sqush. I will love to use it as my meal as I am diabetic.
