Jump to Recipe

Immerse yourself in the simple pleasure of a wholesome and gluten-free pasta alternative with this easy-to-make and delicious Spaghetti Squash Pasta recipe. This dish combines fresh ingredients to create a satisfying and nutritious meal.

Grape tomatoes add natural sweetness to the recipe. Chopped artichokes contribute a hearty texture and earthy flavor, complementing the delicate spaghetti squash strands. Drizzled with olive oil, minced garlic adds a subtle depth to the dish.

The star of this dish is the spaghetti squash, a gluten-free and low-carb alternative to traditional pasta. After baking in the oven, the spaghetti squash and the insides of the squash can be pulled apart to have a consistency similar to noodles. Its mild, nutty flavor is a perfect canvas for vibrant spaghetti vegetables.

Next, add a dash of sea salt and peppercorn, which brings a balanced seasoning. Organic baby spinach and shredded basil provide a final herbaceous note, tying the flavors together seamlessly.

Finally, top it off with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, melting into the warm squash strands and adding a satisfying umami richness.

This Spaghetti Squash offers a delightful and easy-to-make solution for those seeking a healthy pasta option. Focusing on simple, nourishing ingredients brings the joy of flavorful eating without the need for extravagance.
