Spaghetti Squash Alfredo with Spinach

This is so yummy, “keto” friendly and gluten free. Inspired by a TikTok recipe we saw.

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash halved and seeded
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups shredded pizza cheese blend or mozzarella – 1 cup for the base & 1 cup for on top
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1 cup whole milk or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Crushed red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups spinach chiffonade – cut thinly

In a casserole dish place the squash skin side down so the hollowed out center is up. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and equally put the parmesan and 1 cup of the shredded mozzarella in each half.

Season the milk or cream with the seasonings and pour half into each squash. Add a cup of spinach to each half and mix with a fork. Top with the rest of the cheese and bake in 400 degree oven covered with tin foil for 30 minutes.

Remove foil and bake 10-15 more minutes to brown the top. Remove and with a fork scrape the squash into strands while mixing with the cheesy spinach sauce. Enjoy!
