I Can’t Believe It’s Not Spaghetti!

Posted by Adriene on

I did it.

After years of promises (to myself) – I did it.

I made spaghetti squarsh. 

Now, I realize that for some of you this is lame . NBD. Been there done that.

But for me – this is a success story.

All jokes aside, it was a success and everyone at my table enjoyed it! High in fiber, antioxidants and other big vitamins & still comforting (and filling) like your favorite pasta. I baked mine and enjoyed making a sauce, a salad and some comfort bread while it was in the oven. It didn’t take a lot of time and it felt good to slow down and warm up the house a bit during this busy time.

Comfort Italian night – never felt so good.


The recipe:
1 spaghetti squarsh (I got a big ol organic one and it was quite affordable)
olive oil
salt and pepper
marinara sauce (DIY or out of the jar)



What to do:

Preheat oven to 450°

Chop your squarsh in half (be careful)

Scoop out the seeds and guts with a spoon

Drizzle a bit of oil on your squash

Add a little salt and pepper

Place face down in baking dish

Bake for 40 min or until squash is nice and soft


Once soft, take a fork to it. Be careful, it will be hot.

Stroke your squash with the fork  – creating your noodles and place in a bowl.

Toss noodles in sauce or spoon your marinara on top. Yogi’s choice.


Enjoy with a crisp and leafy salad!

Add fresh parmesan if you like!

Serve with fresh basil &  bread for added comfort.


Always cook with love and good vibes. I swear you can taste it.



PS: This pic doesn’t do it justice. In fact, this pic looks kinda gross.
