A healthy low-carb dish every one likes. I have taken it to pot-lucks and people love it. Ground beef or Italian sausage can be added. I have even used leftover spaghetti sauce in this.

  • Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Scrape insides of squash into spaghetti strands with a fork. Transfer to the greased baking dish.

  • Pour tomatoes, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, garlic, and salt over spaghetti squash; mix well. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and bubbly, 45 to 60 minutes.

This is pretty darn tasty, just like a good plate of spaghetti with sauce. I forgot I was eating a vegetable instead of noodles. My squash was smaller than average so I reduced the ingredients (one can of tomatoes and 2 tbsp oregano). It was my first time trying the microwave method and it was pretty nice. The squash cooked evenly enough and was ready in less than 10 minutes. I used tongs to scrape out the "spaghetti" and it was easier, and quicker, than with a fork. Instead of using a casserole dish, I just stuffed the emptied squash shells with the mixture and baked, then even served, in those. Definitely a keeper recipe. Thank you for sharing. Read More

Very Good!!! I used 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and accidentally used a can of diced tomatoes 'chili style'. I also sautéed half a red onion and added that. I didn't have fresh basil or oregano so just sprinkled dry. Great flavor and a wonderful way to use spaghetti squash. Read More

I followed the recipe, but used my own spaghetti sauce (jarred) because that is what I had on hand. This was the first time I have ever made spaghetti squash and my whole (picky) family loved it! ** I added frozen meatballs to it, and a little more sauce and baked it for 45 min. YUMMMMMMMMMMM Read More

This turned out amazing! I used what I had on hand: fresh tomatoes from the garden lightly dried basil and dried oregano and it was perfect. I think adding some ground sausage would be good as well! Read More

This is so good and so easy!! I added hamburger summer squash zucchini spices and LOTS of garlic. Next time I'll parboil the veggies cause it gets very watery but the broth is good! And good to know you can use the microwave for the spaghetti squash; it was so easy and worked like a charm! Read More
