Roasted Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Roasted Spaghetti Squash Recipe on Katie Crafts;

My Whole30 Challenge is complete, and I’m just in the midst of reintroducing each forbidden food now to see what my body can handle and what it can’t. During this time, I have to stick to compliant recipes like this roasted spaghetti squash one! The Husband REALLY loved it, so I know I’ll be making it again soon- diet or not!

I’ve never made a spaghetti squash before, so I wasn’t sure how to go about it. I was especially scared to try to cut that thing open. It’s really heavy and hard! Thankfully, I found that roasting it first makes the whole cutting part easier, so I thought I’d share just what I did with you guys.

*Disclaimer: You are going to want this to taste like spaghetti because of it’s name and appearance. It doesn’t! It’s still a squash! But it’s definitely worth a try!*


  • Medium sized spaghetti squash
  • Clarified butter or ghee*
  • Paleo approved bacon (I buy mine at Whole Foods!)*
  • Salt and pepper to taste

*If you aren’t doing Whole30 or Paleo diets, feel free to use regular butter and bacon!


  • Pre-heat your oven to 400º F.
  • Wash the outside of your squash and place directly on the oven rack.
  • Bake for one hour, or until squash is golden and a fork punctures the skin easily.
  • Take out using oven mitts and let cool while you prepare bacon.
  • Cook bacon according to package. Set aside.
  • Your squash may still be HOT HOT HOT, so be careful! Use a large knife to cut the squash in half lengthwise.
  • Use a spoon and fork to remove the seeds and “guts,” while leaving the spaghetti like insides alone.
  • Use fork to scrape all the noodle-like bits into a bowl.
  • Top with crumbled bacon, clarified butter, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy as a tasty little lunch or an even better side dish!

Pro Tip: You can keep the seeds and roast them as you would pumpkin seeds, if you like! However, there aren’t a lot of them, so it may be more work for not a huge reward.
