A great winter favorite that has nice tender veggies and a wonderful warm and hearty soup. The flavor is better if it cooks all day or night.

  • Cut ends off spaghetti squash; pierce skin in several places with a sharp knife. Transfer to a glass baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until interior can be easily pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Cool until easily handled, at least 20 minutes. Cut in half. Scoop out seeds and discard. Scrape flesh into strands with a fork.

  • Heat olive oil in a slow cooker on High. Add onion, green onions, and garlic; cook and stir in the open cooker until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in apple and butter. Add sausage; cook and stir for 5 minutes.

  • Pour chicken stock and white cooking wine into the slow cooker. Cook until heated through, about 20 minutes. Stir in potatoes; cook, covered, on Low for 20 minutes.

  • Stir spaghetti squash strands and spinach into the slow cooker. Mix in heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, salt, hot sauce, thyme, pepper, sage, and red pepper flakes. Cover and cook on Low until flavors combine, about 8 hours.

Cook's Note:

Substitute any dry white wine for the cooking wine if desired.

it really turned out good! the squash thickened the soup, so it was very hearty and it made a full crockpot! i would put less oil/butter at the beginning (i skimmed some off at the end), i added the whole package of spinach, and i sprinkled parmesan cheese on my soup once i had served it. overall, really good!

Wonderful, satisfying soup. My family are not spaghetti squash fans, so they were skeptical, but went back for seconds! I left out the butter, didn't need the extra fat or calories, and cooked the sausage in an air fryer to decrease the fat. Will certainly make this again, thanks! Read More
