How Many Carbs in Spaghetti Squash?

One cup (approx 100g) of spaghetti squash contains 5.5g net carbs – whereas a cup of regular spaghetti contains 40.5g net carbs! If you're reading my blog and considering spaghetti squash carbs are probably on your mind! If you're on keto spaghetti squash can add up fast, but for a side dish recipe like this it's more manageable than when it's the main ingredient of a meal.

How to Make Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Add the cooked spaghetti squash to a large bowl, together with shredded cheese (mozzarella or Italian blend would work well), garlic paste, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

In a separate small bowl, beat together one egg with some vegetable or chicken broth. Add this to the spaghetti squash and mix well. Spoon the squash into a small baking dish

Cover with foil and roast in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove the foil, add more cheese (hoorah!), and return to the oven uncovered until the cheese has melted and starting to turn golden brown – about 5-8 minutes.

Allow the casserole to stand for 5 minutes before serving. 

You can absolutely prepare this casserole in advance – making it perfect for serving at family gatherings, weeknight dinners or even Thanksgiving! Just prepare up to the end of step 3, then cover and store in the fridge until required. You may need to extend the baking time, so make sure it is fully warmed through before serving.
