Spaghetti Squash with Meatballs

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Mini Turkey Meatballs

Confession: with the exception of pumpkin, I’ve hated every squash I’ve ever eaten. But I’m giving them another shot this fall/winter. This was my first time trying spaghetti squash…and I loved it!

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Yield: a ton of squash

  • 1 spaghetti squash

Preheat the oven to 375Β°F.

Poke a whole spaghetti squash all over with a knife and roast it on a baking sheet for 1 hour. Check for doneness (the knife should easily pierce the skin), then remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Scoop out the seeds and using a spoon, gently pull out the squash strands.

Cook the squash in a pan with butter, parsley, garlic, red pepper flakes, and parmesan.
