Foodie Friday: Festive Spaghetti Squash Bake

Welcome to Foodie Friday! I thought I’d kick off the first foodie Friday post of December with this Festive red and green spaghetti squash bake!

To Roast Spaghetti Squash:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 Degrees
  • Cut a medium spaghetti squash in half & scoop out seeds *To make it easier to cut the squash in half, poke holes in the squash and microwave it for about 1 minute. This softens the skin and allows for an easier cut.*
  • Massage squash with olive oil & add garlic powder, salt, pepper, and chili powder

Squash

  • Line baking sheet with aluminium foil and place squash skin side up (NOT flesh side down because I hate the word “flesh” ew!)

Roast

  • Roast 30-45 minutes or until you can poke the middle of the squash with a fork easily, here’s what my finished squash looked like after 40 minutes:

Post Roast

  • Using a fork, peel squash and place in to a bowl it will look like pasta at this point

Spaghetti

For the bake you will need:

  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 batch of green onion
  • 2-3 handfuls of spinach
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Goat cheese
  • Dill weed & garlic powder

Filling

Putting it all together:

  • Lower oven heat to 350 degrees
  • Chop bell pepper and saute with olive oil and garlic powder ย for 5-7 minutes or until tender. During the last two minutes of cooking, add in spinach

Saute

  • Chop green onion and add to spaghetti squash, add sauteed vegetables to squash mixture and stir to combine

Mixture

  • Pour mixture in to a 9×9 baking dish
  • Sprinkle top with bread crumbs, goat cheese, and Dill

Finished Sprinkle Dill

  • Bake 20-30 minutes until edges have browned and cheese is bubbly.

I served mine with some garlic roasted potatoes! (I’ll have to share that recipe sometime soon too!) Hope everyone’s enjoying the start to the holiday season!
