Cooking Tips

  • Be careful when cutting the spaghetti squash, as it can be quite tough.
  • To make the shredding process easier, you can microwave the whole squash for a few minutes to soften it before cutting and roasting.
  • Feel free to customize the vegetable mixture to your liking. You can add mushrooms, zucchini, or any other vegetables you enjoy.
  • For a vegetarian version, omit the bacon and add some cooked chickpeas or black beans for protein.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Storage and Serving

  • Loaded spaghetti squash is best served hot, straight from the oven.
  • You can garnish it with fresh herbs like parsley or basil for added freshness.
  • This dish can be a complete meal on its own, but you can also serve it as a side dish alongside grilled chicken or fish.
  • To reheat leftovers, simply microwave them until heated through or warm them in a skillet over medium heat.
