Stuffed Spaghetti Squash with Spinach & Artichoke

Stuffed spaghetti squash

Stuffed spaghetti squash is a great healthy comfort food and so easy to make too!  A versatile and healthy dish perfect for a cold day.

One of my favourite recipes is a creamy spinach and artichoke dip and I thought I would incorporate it with a baked spaghetti squash.  It makes a delicious filling and goes so well with the sweetness of the squash.

This is a very filling dish and could happily be shared by 4 people.  Or two very, very hungry people.  I’ve found that I eat half of a shell, then devour the remaining half the next day.  It’s a “return later” dish.  You could serve this as a side dish to share too.

 

Did you know that technically spaghetti squash is a fruit?  Botanically, a fruit bears seeds and develops from a flower.   Live and learn!

I love the simplicity of this stuffed squash and you could prepare this ahead of serving too.  Just bake it when you are ready to eat!  Perhaps add a few ingredients to this filling too.  Maybe chopped bacon or shredded chicken to the spinach artichoke filling.

Simply slice, bake, stuff and bake again!  It doesn’t get easier than this!
