Creamy Spaghetti Squash w/Garlic

Spaghetti squash is one versatile veggie; it’s nutritious and tastes good too!

However, it probably doesn’t get all the love it deserves.  It has a delicate buttery taste, without adding butter; making it a healthy substitute for pasta, if a person is limiting carb intake.

This is a creamy dish, that’s easy to pull together.  If you’ve never cooked the squash, this is a good recipe to start with!  Next time, I will be adding more garlic…

Creamy Spaghetti Squash w/Garlic


1 spaghetti squash
1 small onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
¼ cup half and half or milk
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon dried parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut squash in half and remove seeds.
Bake squash, cut-side down on a baking sheet for about 45 minutes, until fork tender, let cool to handle.
Shred squash with a fork, lengthwise like spaghetti strands, set aside.
In a hot skillet, sauté onions and garlic until tender.
Add shredded squash and mix.
Season with salt and pepper.
Blend in chicken broth and half and half.
Add cheese and parsley, combine well.
Remove to serving dish.
Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan, if desired.



  1. We enjoy spaghetti squash here, but generally use it with marinara sauce. This is a new option. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Pam,
    this dish a good healthy alternative to many calorie laden dishes, especially during the holidays. I will have to try soon. Did you have giant snowflakes this morning? We did here, but they didn't last long.

  3. Love spaguettis and with garlkic sounds delicious!!

  4. Pam, We like spaghetti squash and we serve it several times during the fall and winter. We've never tried it like this though. We usually just season it and bake it...then slather it with some good Amish butter! I like the creamy effect that your recipe achieves though... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. This sounds really good, I cooked a spaghetti squash for the first time in over 35 years the other day, and I will definitely cook this squash more often.

  6. Hi Pam, I almost bought one of these at the farmers market last week, love how you prepared this!! Pinned!

  7. Very interesting. I just baked off a big Halloween pumpkin yesterday and he shredded as well. Good stuff, these kinds of foods and I agree with you, they don't get enough love.

  8. We LOVE it!!

    I could eat it a lot actually:)

  9. I love spaghetti squash, and this is a new way for me to fix it. Looks yummy! :)

  13. I hate to admit we've never tried spaghetti squash. It would be fantastic for my BIL who is diabetic. I just may surprise him next time we have him over for dinner. It sounds delicious Pam.

  14. We eat spaghetti squash at least once a week - I'll have to give this creamy version a try! Thanks Pam - Merry Christmas.

  15. Sounds like a must try dish :)

  16. I have never eaten nor seen a spaghetti squash before! Would love to try it!
