29 Spaghetti Squash Recipes That Prove It Could Be The Greatest Squash Of All

Posted: Updated:

Spaghetti squash isn't like all the other squash -- it's special. Don't be fooled by its customary squash-like outward appearance: once cooked, it turns into little pasta-shaped strands of squash (hence, the name). It's this divine noodle quality that makes spaghetti squash recipes just a little more fun than other squash dishes.

We've already covered how spaghetti squash does NOT taste anything like spaghetti, despite the fact that they look similar and you can twirl both up with a fork. So instead of using it as a substitute for something you really can't compare it to, give spaghetti squash some attention in its own right -- when you're not trying to pretend it tastes like pasta, it actually shines in the spotlight. We've put together 29 of our favorite spaghetti squash recipes guaranteed to change the way you think about this squash.
