Low Carb Spaghetti Squash


  • One 3 Lb Spaghetti Squash
  • 1½ cups Onion, chopped
  • 1½ Tbsp    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 5 Medium Tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 Medium Zucchini cubed
  • ¼ cup    Fresh Snipped Basil
  • 2 cloves    Garlic, minced
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
  • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil. Using the tip of a sharp knife, pierce the squash in several places. Place on baking pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pan, cook onions in olive oil until tender. Add tomatoes, zucchini, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Uncover and cook for about 6-8 minutes, stirring often, or until the zucchini is crisp-tender; keep warm.
  3. Remove squash from oven and carefully slice in half. Remove seeds and discard. Use a fork to shred the squash into long strands into a bowl.
  4. To serve, place the spaghetti squash on a serving platter or individual plates. Pour sauce over squash. Garnish with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
