Herb and Garlic Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Herb and Garlic Roasted Spaghetti Squash.

Amazingly Delicious!

I thought I was going to make something a bit more extravagant when I decided to roast some spaghetti squash by simply drizzling with olive oil, sprinkling with coarse ground pepper and salt, and topping with some garlic cloves and fresh herbs.

But when it came out of the oven looking like this….

And I took a teensy taste when scraping the flesh with a fork….

I ended up eating an entire half for my lunch!

I adore spaghetti squash, and have made it a number of ways that I’ve shared here:

Four Cheese Garlic Spaghetti Squash

Parmesan Garlic Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Italian Spaghetti Squash

But this super simple, quick and easy way is my new fave…..   at least for today!

Here is how I made it:

Herb & Garlic Roasted Spaghetti Squash


  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4-6 cloves garlic
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Herbs


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut spaghetti squash in half, and scoop out seeds.  Place in cast iron skillet.  Drizzle liberally with extra virgin olive oil, toss garlic cloves and fresh herbs on top (I used fresh parsley and rosemary), and sprinkle liberally with fresh ground pepper and salt.

Roast for 45-55 minutes.

Remove from oven, and scrape flesh with fork to create spaghetti.  Serve immediately.


Cheers & Hugs,

  2. Omit the garlic (sorry!) and I will be delighted! I love spaghetti squash and just added it to this week’s shopping list. I need something yummy after spending the last two days raking leaves, yet again. The leaves are falling as I’m raking, it’s the never ending story this year! Thank-you for this delicious idea!

    • Oh – you are just like my dad – lol – no onions and no garlic – not sure how you two survive!!! 🙂

      Aren’t your leaves done yet! Time for snow!

      Here’s to hoping the all blow away by morning! 🙂


      • Benjamin and I were out this morning for the last hurrah of leaf raking this year!! The leaves did blow last night…into my yard! This was the 6th. raking and there are 12 bags by the curb waiting for the last pickup by the town. Any leaves that dare to fall into my yard are spending the winter undisturbed. THE END!!! P.S. Benjamin wants you to know “I’m Gem’s good helper cause I am big and strong!” P.P.S. Spaghetti squash is on the supper menu and two want the garlic. Not me! Thank-you!
