This was certainly the hit of the party. I served this paleo pasta primavera with my paleo pork roast loin and it disappeared right in front of me! Keep warm until ready to serve.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until spaghetti squash is softened and partially cooked, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven; cool until easily handled. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cut spaghetti squash in half and seed. Pull the squash flesh from the peel with a fork.

  • Heat oil in a braising pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic; cook and stir until flavors combine, about 3 minutes. Stir in green beans; cook until bright green, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning into the pan; simmer until tomatoes are warm, about 5 minutes. Add spaghetti squash; toss until combined. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until spaghetti squash is tender, about 10 minutes.

Squash needed 40 minutes to soften and then an hour all together to cook. I added much more seasoning. Read More

This is delicious. Definitely will be made in my house again and again. I did fully cook the squash in the oven then just mixed into the pan with the other ingredients. I did add a dash of red pepper flakes and served with a spicy Italian sausage. Read More

I had a small squash so i cut the recipe back. I also added my own sauce instead of the diced tomatoes. Added fresh minced rosemary and basil.Makes a nice light meal. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I made the recipe. The squash absolutely needs to be cooked longer the first time than it states. I ended up cooking it for the 25 minutes then having to throw it into the microwave for longer. However it is absolutely delicious! I also altered it to be a one-pan meal. Just aded the ingredients to the pan covered and finished that way instead of the oven. Everyone over it. Next time I will just cook the squash in the microwave. Saves energy and is much quicker. Read More

Fresh green beans weren't available and I didn't want canned or frozen green beans. I substituted a can of black beans (drained and rinsed) which tasted phenomenal. I'm sure the green beans would taste good too. The seasonings were spot-on. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for the more complicated steps of partially cooking the spaghetti squash and then putting the entire finished dish into the oven. The spaghetti squash was more difficult to cut in half plus I was unable to scrape as much squash out because it was undercooked. I will definitely make this dish again but next time I will cook the squash entirely in the oven then scrape it into the skillet at the end toss and serve. Then it will be unnecessary to put it all back in the oven. Thank you for the recipe! Read More
