How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

If you want to cook spaghetti squash but don’t know exactly how or cutting it is too difficult, check out this post and the helpful video right below.


I love substituting cooked spaghetti squash for traditional pasta to keep some of my meals lower carb. Kids love it too but cooked the right way.

Whether it’s in the microwave, baked, steamed or cooked in the slow-cooker, this veggie is rich in folic acid, potassium, and vitamin A! When cooked, the flesh comes out in strands that resemble angel hair pasta with a mild taste. Making it perfect for pairing with rich sauces like this Crockpot Tomato Sauce or Easy Alfredo Sauce.

With only 40 calories and 10 grams of carbs per cup cooked this vegetable is the perfect low-carb and gluten-free substitute to family-favorite recipes that typically use pasta, like shrimp scampi, spaghetti meatballs, or my personal favorite, Garlic Butter Chicken and Spaghetti Squash.

If you need a gluten-free substitute for pasta or a lower carb option, spaghetti squash is it! Many of our members use it to substitute pasta in our Classic Meal Plan, and it makes an appearance or two in the Grain-Free Meal Plan and in the Family Kickstart Program.
