Spaghetti Squash 'Carbonara' w/ Fresh Arugula

Love pasta, but don't love the calories? Spaghetti Squash is a great alternative to low-carb pasta and it's equally as delicious as the real thing, I promise! Those big, yellow squashes can look a little intimidating at first, however they are really easy to prepare, despite their enormous size!

Spaghetti Squash Carbonara w/ Fresh Arugula Recipe:

Yield: 2 Servings

Cook Time: 55 Min


- 1 Spaghetti Squash, Halved

- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil

- 1 tsp Salt

- 1 tsp Black Pepper

- 1 Cup Arugula, Rinsed + Dried

- ½ Tbsp Olive Oil

- ¼ Yellow Onion, Diced

- ½ Shallot, Minced

- 1/8 Cup AP Flour

- 1 Cup Coconut Cream

- ½ tsp Sea Salt

- ½ tsp Black Pepper

- ¼ Cup Nutritional Yeast

- 1 ½ tsp Italian Seasonings

- 1/8 Cup Parsley, Chopped


1. Preheat oven to 400F. Wash and dry spaghetti squash. Cut in half, lengthwise.

2. Remove the seeds from the center, and discard. Rub 1 Tbsp olive oil over the inside of the spaghetti squash half.

3. Sprinkle salt and pepper over inside as well. Place on a lightly greased sheet tray and bake for 30-40 minutes. The squash is finished when a fork can easily “rake” the strings out.

4. In a large skillet, heat ½ Tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and saute for five minutes. Add the shallot and saute for an additional 2-3 minutes. Add flour, cook for 1 minute.

5. Next, add coconut cream, sea salt, black pepper, nutritional yeast, and Italian seasonings. Cook on low heat for 5-7 minutes or until mixture thickens. Add additional salt or pepper as necessary.

6. Once squash is finished, rake the strings out and place in a bowl. Toss with the coconut cream sauce and place in a bowl or on a plate.

7. Top with chopped parsley for a delightful garnish. Pair with ½ cup arugula, enjoy!


- You can place the spaghetti squash in the microwave for five minutes to reduce your cooking time. Simply pierce the whole squash with a fork or paring knife and microwave on a plate or baking dish.
