Low Carb Baked Spaghetti Squash With Garlic Sage Cream

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 45 mins

A few simple ingredients transform this mild tasting vegetable into a memorable side dish. My whole family loves this, even kids and at only 2 grams of carbs per serving it is a great dish to beat back the pasta craving! It tastes alot like spaghetti alfredo. I usually serve this with grilled chicken. My girlfriend passed this recipe on to me, I have no idea where it came from. If you are watching carbs it has a net carb count of only 2 grams per serving. For those doing Atkins, use the heavy cream, for those on SBD use milk and add a wee bit of thickener if needed. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This was good, but not quite our taste. It had less flavor than I expected.

Spaghetti squashes are strange little things, aren't they? :) My husband and I had both never had spaghetti squash before, and I had never made it, so I chose this recipe. I used fat-free half and half in place of the cream, 1 tsp. dried sage, a lot more garlic, and I made it with grilled chicken, as suggested, and it was a filling dinner. We both came up with "interesting" (not good or bad, just - interesting). Recipe #77554 really helped out too, with the cooking and what-not. I personally really liked this sauce and might use it for a pasta, maybe, but I got the "vibe" that it's not a make-again for us. However, we can both say that we've tried spaghetti squash now. Thanks for posting!

I just finished eating this and it was SO GOOD! After reading other reviews, I added extra garlic and sage. I will definitely be making it again. Thanks Leslie!
