If you’re looking to add more nutritious plant based meals to your diet this recipe for spaghetti squash with garlic sauce is for you! It’s completely plant based, so suitable for a vegan diet but delicious enough for everyone. This recipe was developed for Dinner 4 Two by Michelle Carolla.
The best part is that this recipe is quick and easy and made on the stovetop in our favorite Kitchen Charm cookware. You can use the 6 quart dutch oven or the 10.5″ skillet, depending on how large your squash is and how much you want to cook and how many people you are cooking for. We recommend cooking half a squash for two people and saving the other half for later.
We love the deep rich flavor of roasted garlic and how easy it is to create by just tossing in a bulb of garlic with the spaghetti squash while it cooks! The garlic makes a delicious sauce and completes this quick and easy meal.
