Garlic parmesan spaghetti squash is made with sautéed onions, garlic, parsley and Parmesan cheese for a healthy and low-carb side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash, 3 to 3-1/2 lbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place the squash, cut side down in a baking dish and add about 1/4 inch of water.
  • Tent with foil and bake until the squash is tender when pierced with a sharp knife, about 45 to 50 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and use a fork to rake the strands of flesh out of the skin and into a bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and lightly caramelized, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and continue to sauté for 2 to 3 minutes longer.
  • Add the spaghetti squash and toss to combine thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook for 2 to 3 minutes to be sure the squash is heated through.
  • Add the parsley and Parmesan and toss again.
