Spaghetti Squash with Tomato Sauce is an ideal vegetable to use as a pasta alternative. This can be a spaghetti squash dish that will surprise your kids! Spaghetti squash is a delicious way to substitute eating real pasta, especially when you are looking for a light low-carb supper during weeknights, or just too tired to make a big dinner.
Cooking spaghetti squash is not complicated at all. In fact, this recipe is featured in most food magazines every year. We love it because it’s a quick and easy dish to make, and super easy to clean up too!
Just cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds and lightly rub olive oil inside the flesh and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the squash softens when you press down on it. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the squash.
Then take a fork and scrape the inside into “spaghetti like” strands, and serve in pasta bowls with some fresh marinara sauce on top and serve with some grated Parmesan cheese at the table.
To make this squash dish fast and easier? I always have freshly made tomato sauce in my fridge, ready to use on recipes like this one.
A few weeks ago we posted our Mom’s Quick Marinara Sauce and thought we could offer you another idea to use her sauce. It is the perfect sauce to make this squash flavorful!
Spaghetti squash is healthy, super fast, and gluten-free!
The kids really love this dish because it was so different.
