Garlic and Herb Spaghetti Squash

You can never have too many recipes for spaghetti squash. If your eating a grain free diet or if your looking to integrate more produce into your life, spaghetti squash is a fantastic substitute to pasta. It’s not quite as satisfying as actual pasta of course but with a bit of time, I’ve actually grown to love spaghetti squash. The taste is fairly neutral and it’s highly adaptable.

This recipe has a simple blend of ghee, dry herbs and garlic. A generous sprinkle of Parmesan or a nice portion of Gruyere’ would only make it better! This recipe makes herb butter for about half of a squash. I LOVE garlic so this is a nice garlicky recipe, if you want it less mellow, use less, if you love that pop of yum, add more! For me variety is important and I love having small portions of things. This recipe can easily be multiplied to make enough for 1 or even 2 whole spaghetti squash depending on how many folks you are feeding.
Garlic and Herb Spaghetti Squash

  • Half Of a Roasted Spaghetti Squash (recipe here)
  • 1/4 cup Ghee or Butter Melted
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dry basil

+sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

  1. In a small butter pot melt ghee or butter over medium-low heat.
  2. Add minced garlic (I use a micro plane and grate it), parsley, oregano, basil and salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the mixture for just a minute to two minutes to remove some of the bite of the raw garlic. It will smell of garlic when its about ready. Be sure not to burn the garlic!
  4. Remove from the heat.
  5. Mix in the spaghetti squash “noodles.” Gently toss it to combine.
  6. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.

Serve warm with your favorite cheese, herbs and pine nuts. Or exactly as it is. Simple and spectacular! I especially love this with grated sheeps milk cheese and lemon + pepper chicken or roasted shrimp. However it is whole 30 and paleo compliant written exactly as it is.

Note: Double the recipe for an entire squash.

Add fresh chopped parsley and other herbs if you have them available.
