Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Parmesan and Fresh Parsley Recipe


Jump to Recipe

If you're looking for a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional pasta, roasted spaghetti squash is a great option. Not only is it low in calories and high in nutrients, but it also has a unique texture that absorbs flavors beautifully.


Spaghetti squash is a nutritious and low-calorie alternative to pasta and other starchy carbs. It is a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and has several potential health benefits:

  1. Weight management: Spaghetti squash is relatively low in calories and high in fiber, which may help with weight management.

  2. Heart health: Spaghetti squash is a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure and may reduce the risk of heart disease.

  3. Diabetes management: Spaghetti squash has a low glycemic index, meaning it has a slower effect on blood sugar levels than high-glycemic foods. This may make it a good option for people with diabetes or at risk of developing diabetes.

  4. Digestive health: The fiber in spaghetti squash may help improve digestion and prevent constipation.

  5. Cancer prevention: Spaghetti squash contains antioxidants and phytochemicals that may help protect against cancer.

Spaghetti squash is generally in season from late summer through early winter. In the United States, it is typically available from September through November. However, due to the widespread availability of many types of produce, it is often possible to find spaghetti squash year-round in grocery stores.

To get the freshest and most flavorful spaghetti squash, try to purchase it during its peak season. You can usually tell if a squash is ripe and ready to eat by its firm, unblemished skin and heavy weight for its size. Avoid squash that is soft, blemished, or shriveled, as these are signs that it is past its prime.

If you're looking to incorporate more seasonal produce into your diet, check out local farmers markets or consider joining a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program. These can be a great way to access fresh, locally grown produce and support small farmers in your community.

And now, to the recipe!
