  • 1 whole spaghetti squash, about 3 pounds
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded Parmesan
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley


To cook the spaghetti squash:

  1. To cook in the oven, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the squash in half length-wise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Discard the seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and place face down on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour or until squash is fork tender.
  2. To cook in the Instant Pot, follow these directions.
  3. Once squash is cooked, shred the squash into long spaghetti-like strands by using a fork to scrape the squash widthwise.

To make the Alfredo sauce:

  1. Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Once butter has melted, add the cream, garlic, salt, and pepper and bring to a simmer.
  3. Turn off the heat and add the shredded Parmesan to the pan. Whisk until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

To assemble:

  1. Pour the Alfredo sauce over the squash and stir to coat.
  2. Spoon the squash into the empty squash halves. Sprinkle with the mozzarella. Alternately, add to a 9×9 baking dish.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.


Top with grilled chicken, if desired.
