Roasted “Alfredo” Spaghetti Squash

  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print


  • Spaghetti squash, halved length wise
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • ⅛ cup pistachios
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Red peppers (feel free to char under the broiler before hand for extra flavor!)
  • ⅓ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded


  1. Step 1 (the squash)
    • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    • Scrape out/discard seeds from squash
    • Drizzle inside with oil, salt and pepper.
    • Place cut-side down on a baking sheet and roast 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  2. Step 2 (the sauce)
    • Sauté onions, peppers and garlic in large sauce pot until starting to brown (about 2 min). Add salt and pepper.
    • Reduce to heat and cook 8 more minutes, or until onions caramelize, stirring occasionally.
    • Add butter. When melted add tomatoes.
    • Add milk and bring to an active simmer. Simmer 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Blend with immersion blender to make “alfredo” sauce. If too runny, allow sauce to reduce before serving. If too thick, add more liquid.
  3. Step 3 (combine)
    • Once squash is done, allow to cool until you can hold. Separate squash strands from peel with a fork. (Pro tip: We like to leave the squash in the shell and serve all together for a festive presentation!)
    • Top with sauce, freshly grated parmesan and pistachios!
