An alternative to potatoes au gratin :) And who doesn't love that!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove the seeds. Place in a covered dish with a ¼ inch of water and microwave for 10 -12 minutes.
  2. In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, add the butter, onions, red pepper and thyme and cook until the onions are slightly brown in color. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Using a fork, scrape the insides of the squash and transfer to a small bowl.
  4. Combine the squash, onions, sour cream and half the cheese together and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a buttered baking dish and top with remaining cheese.
  5. Place into a 375º for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown on top.

I love this recipe but found it impossible to cut the squash in half, so I microwaved it for 5 minutes.

This is a nice, unique side dish. It's very creamy and cheesy. I made this as written, just adding a little garlic ans some salt. I loved the kick of heat from the crushed red pepper. Thanx for a new to prepare spaghetti squash!

This is really a different way to serve squash and we quite enjoyed it. It is great for South Beach Dieters as it's almost like potatoes au gratin only it is "legal"! Once I got the dang squash cut in half it was smooth sailing. I used low fat sour cream and low fat cheese blend with cheddar, gouda, mozzarella and provolone. Yum! Made for PAC 2012, thanks for the lovely recipe.
