Print Recipe


  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 2 cups spinach raw
  • 1 medium red onion peeled & finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled & chopped
  • 4 oz goats cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees
  • Line a baking tin or dish with parchment paper.
  • Wash and dry the spaghetti squash.
  • Cut the spaghetti squash into half, lengthwise.
  • Remove the seeds and the stringy parts of the flesh. Best scooped out with a spoon.
  • Drizzle half of the olive oil all over the two halves and season the inside with salt and pepper.
  • Place the squash cut side down on the baking tin.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes. Smaller squash will cook quicker so check after 30 minutes to see if the squash is cooked. (Poke it with a knife to check the flesh is tender).
  • Whilst the squash is baking, prepare the filling.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a frying pan and add the onion and garlic. Sautee for 5-8 minutes until soft and golden.
  • Add the spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and add the goats cheese.
  • When the squash is cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Turn the squash around and with a fork gently pull the squash flesh from the skin so that it starts to look like spaghetti strands.
  • Spoon the spaghetti squash flesh into the spinach mixture and gently combine. Season to taste.
  • Place the filling into the spaghetti squash cases and place back into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Eat and enjoy!
