Mock Noodle Kugel (Using Spaghetti Squash; Low-Carb, Fat-Free)

I based this recipe on one I found in Nechama Cohen's "Enlitened Kosher Cooking." I chose the sweet variation, so that's what I'm posting; but if you want a savory kugel, leave out the Splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg and replace it with one peeled, sliced medium onion and two peeled, minced cloves of garlic sauteed in a tablespoon of olive oil. Don't be deterred by the cooking time -- most of it is spent waiting for the squash to cool, or the kugel to bake!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the spaghetti squash: split it in half and remove the seeds and strings. Place the halves cut-side down in 1/4 c water, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for seven to ten minutes or until the flesh is soft. Allow to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400. Line an 8" square baking pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Using a fork, scrape the flesh out of the squash halves. Place the "spaghetti" in a large bowl.
  4. Lightly beat the eggs and egg whites; add them, along with the rest of the ingredients, to the bowl with the squash. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan and lighting spray the top with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes at 400, then lower the heat to 350 and bake for another 30 minutes, until the kugel starts to turn a bit golden.

This was delicious. I've never done a sweet spaghetti squash recipe so I was nervous but it turned out great. I only had half a squash so I cut the recipe in half and baked in a loaf pan. My friend laments that I'm always adding cheese to her beloved traditional foods and this was no exception: it was wonderful with cream cheese! ;-) Thanks for sharing.

I had really enjoyed this dish. I think it be served as a dessert. I can't wait to make it for my family when I go down for the Holidays. The only thing I changed was the sugar, I used Stevia not Splenda.
