This dish leaves even the biggest pasta lover satisfied. Fresh vegetables make this dish wonderful and it's easy to add meat to if you wish. The first time I made it, my husband fell in love and everyone wanted the recipe. This dish is great topped with a small amount of shredded cheese. I recommend Gouda.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange the tomatoes on a baking sheet with the cut sides facing up.

  • Roast the tomatoes in the preheated oven until cooked through and slightly browned on the underside, about 15 minutes.

  • Place squash halves face down in glass baking dish with the water; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on High for 8 minutes. Leave covered and set aside. Once the squash is cool enough to handle, scrape in strands into a large bowl with a fork; season with salt and pepper and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat; cook and stir the garlic, basil, and Italian seasoning in the oil until the garlic is softened, about 10 minutes. Add the onion, green bell pepper, eggplant, and carrot to the garlic; increase heat to medium. Continue cooking and stirring until the vegetables are nearly tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Mix the tomatoes and white wine into the vegetable mixture; cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to the bowl with the spaghetti squash; gently toss together.

This dish was extremely disappointing. I was very optimistic looking at the ingredient list but after putting it all together there was a profound lack of flavor. We eat a good deal of vegetable dishes but this is not one we will be repeating. Read More

I really like this recipe. I may have altered it slightly using more garlic and no cheese but it was delicious! It is a great alternative to pasta and much better for you! Read More

I wanted to like this dish but it just didn't have that great of a taste. At least it was full of veggies. Read More

I'm giving this 4 stars only because there is a lot you can do with this recipe it's just a matter of playing around with it. I followed it exactly with the exception of adding some smoked turkey sausage. The flavor is wonderful everything mixes together beautifully. I just want to spice it up slightly maybe add some crushed red pepper. Thank you for a wonderful recipe! Read More

This was a great source of a tonne of veggies and very tasty to boot. The flavour is very mild though. Some parmesan cheese helped pick it up. A little more olive oil double the herbs and perhaps more wine reduced would give it a stronger flavour? It is a very light meal. I would recommend some bread or something with it to give it a little weight or you might be hungry in an hour. Read More

I thought this dish was great! I felt all of the flavors of the vegetables worked together very well. It was my first time cooking spaghetti squash and now I am absolutely in love with the vegetable! The eggplant really soaked up the juices of the veggie mixture and the wine and the roasted tomatoes were very flavorful as well. Thank you for the great recipe! Read More
