Spaghetti Squash Recipes: Healthy Pesto “Spaghetti”

It’s hard to find really good spaghetti squash recipes. When I got a Spaghetti squash in my Wickham Farms CSA share, it sat around the house for 2 weeks before I finally decided to do something with it.

But, boy, I’m glad I finally did.

I came up with an easy, vegetarian (vegan if you leave off the cheese), healthful 1-dish meal that can be made in under 10 minutes – perfect for busy nights.

Spaghetti Squash RecipesIn fact, to keep prep easy during the week, I have a little ritual I do when I get the squash home. Even if it’s eight’o'clock, I’ll slice the squash in half, drizzle it with olive oil, and roast it in the oven for 30-45 minutes at 400°.  When it cools, I just scrape out the flesh and put it in a container in the fridge. Then, when it is time to make this dish during the week, I can just pull it out and throw it in.

 

Spaghetti Squash Recipes: Pesto “Spaghetti” Recipe

You’ll need:

  • 1 spaghetti squash, roasted, cooled, and the flesh scraped out
  • 1 can of drained canellini beans – I used the Tuscan flavored canellini beans from Wegmans, but any are fine
  • 2-3 tbsp pesto – either homemade or prepared
  • Sprinkle of parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)

Here’s what to do:

1. In a skillet heated on low, add the pesto.

2. When it starts melting, add the beans and stir continuously until warmed through.
