Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs

Serves: 2


  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup marinara sauce (Aim for low sugar)
  • Meatballs of choice (I prefer turkey, or plant-based)
  • Fresh basil for serving


  1. Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the squash halves, and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Flip upside down on the baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Allow to cool.
  3. Once cool enough, flake the squash with a fork and add to a serving bowl. Top with marinara sauce and cooked meatballs of choice.
  4. Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy.
