This is one of my family’s favorite Italian dishes. I like to have chicken and spaghetti squash already pre-made so that I can easily put a dish like this together.

To make this dairy free, I use coconut milk. Mixed with all the spices and other ingredients it makes a delicious creamy sauce. If you don’t like coconut milk, don’t worry, because once this sauce is all mixed and baked you won’t taste the coconut flavor.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Step by step pictures and instructions on how to cut and cook a spaghetti squash in the oven and in the Instant Pot. Easy to make ahead for quick dinners. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

I remember the first time I tried a spaghetti squash I was perplexed at how hard it was and really didn’t know how to cut it open. So I pulled out my big butcher knife and called my husband into the kitchen and asked him to take care of it. He did and then I baked it up and we had the first of many wonderful meals featuring spaghetti squash. As time went on I realized I needed to be able to cut that hard spaghetti squash myself and so I searched for the best way to cut one and this method is now my go to way to cut it open. It’s actually super easy and we never really needed that big ole’ knife after all.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

All you need is a small paring knife. My absolute favorite paring knife is by Rada. And while I’m at it the tomato knife by Rada is the bomb. You can use it on so many other things besides tomatoes. I wouldn’t want to be without my Rada knives in my kitchen. Okay, back to the cutting the squash. Hold onto one end of the spaghetti squash, keeping your fingers far from the cutting area.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Take the paring knife and insert just the tip. Do not push the knife in very far as it will get stuck from the pressure of the shell. So put just the tip in and then pull up and make another little cut.

Make your way all the way around the spaghetti squash until you connect with your first cut.

You may need to go around the squash with your paring knife one more time making the cut just a little bit deeper. This will not take hardly any time at all to do.

When I bake them I like to spritz the squash with some avocado or olive oil, you could also use a coconut cooking spray. It’s not necessary to spritz them if you will be cooking them in the Instant Pot.

I often make two or three spaghetti squash at a time and keep the cooked spaghetti strands in my refrigerator for a quick meal. It also freezes well, so I may put half of it in a freezer bag and freeze for another day.

I bake it in the oven at 350° for 60 to 70 minutes until nice and fork tender. I like to have my spaghetti squash soft so if you would prefer to have a crunchy bite just bake it for a little less.

Let it cool and then using a fork pull out the long strands of spaghetti.

To sweeten these muffins you can use the Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or my homemade version of that which is a mixture of 1 cup of Now Foods non-GMO Erythritol and 1 teaspoon of Now Foods Better Stevia. Our family likes this brand of stevia the best of all the ones that we have tried. I usually buy the 1 lb. container and it lasts for several months.

Frosted Mocha - Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

This Frosted Mocha is a delicious and satisfying drink. Perfect for a snack between meals or for a big dessert.

Tips for making Frosted Mocha:

  • Keep an eye on the carbs in your cocoa powder, some of them contain more carbs than others. I use raw cacao powder when I can for an added healthy benefit, but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this delightful drink.
  • The added collagen in this drink gives you a good amount of protein to help make this a more satisfying snack. THM Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen works well in this recipe. It’s also great for your skin and joints.
  • The glucomannan helps give this drink a creamy texture. Either THM Glucomannan or Now Glucomannan would work well.
  • This drink is best enjoyed within a half-hour of making.
  • I do use a Vitamix blender and so I have a tamper that I use to push down the ice while it’s blending. If you are using a different type of blender you may need to stop the blender occasionally and use a large spoon or rubber spatula to push down the ice.

If you need a chocolate and peanut butter fix here you go! These muffins have veggies in them, but you won’t be able to taste it.

Yellow or zucchini squash make these muffins extra moist. I like to shred summer squash and freeze it in two cup portions to be able to use it throughout the year. If using frozen squash, just be sure to drain off any excess water before putting it in a recipe.

Almond butter can be used in place of peanut butter, if you prefer.

I use a Vita-Mix blender, which is a power-horse of a blender. If you don’t have a heavy-duty blender you may want to use a food processor instead.

Yellow Squash Snack Cake - Tastes like a yummy pound cake. Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S

This simple to make snack cake makes me think a lot of a pound cake, but without all the sugar. The yellow squash makes this cake nice and moist and the combination of almond flour and the THM Baking Blend gives it the perfect texture. This cake is delicious even without icing. My favorite way to serve it is plain or with a berry sauce.

While summer squash is in season, I like to freeze it in 2 cup portions so that I can easily make baked goods throughout the year using squash. Most of the time we think of using zucchini in cakes, but yellow squash works just as well, especially if you’re wanting a lighter color of cake.

It’s simple to freeze summer squash.

  • Peel or leave peeling, the choice is yours. There are more nutrients in the peeling, but if you don’t want the extra yellow or green color you can peel them first.
  • Cut out seedy centers.
  • Shred. This is easiest done in a food processor. This food processor is the one that I use.
  • Freeze in 2-cup portions in freezer bags.
  • To use, thaw on counter or place in a bowl of water for a few hours thaw. Drain excess water off before using in recipe.
