Spaghetti Squash BGE style

Spaghetti Squash

Split squash length-wise and clean out the seeds.  Coat the exposed squash with olive oil.

Set up Egg with direct heat at approx 375. 

Place squash flesh-side down for approx 15-20 minutes to get a little char going on the flesh.

Use oven-mitts to move both pieces of squash onto a piece of aluminum foil (pierced) and still flesh-side down. 

Cook approx another 30 minutes until the shell-side is soft when squeezed. 

Let it cool down and then rake out of the shell with a fork. 

Top this just as you would a pasta, with marinara, parmesan cheese, or whatever your preference. 


Cheers--to healthy eating!!!

    I never tried one but last week I got my first spaghetti squash and was trying to figure out what to do. Do you have any pics to help aid your description?

    I always have a hard time cutting spaghetti squash in half
  • Would love a pic or two. Sounds awesome


  • Sorry, y'all.  I didn't take any pics.  My bad....note to self for next time.  And yes, the shell of a spaghetti squash is hard.  It's not the easiest to cut in half.  But it's so worth it!  I no longer eat pasta, so this is a HUGE fix for me when I'm craving some italian food!

    Usually just roast in the oven but will have to try it on the Egg.

    Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite foods. We have always steamed it. I'll def be trying this though.
  • I love Spaghetti Squash 
  • Had spaghetti squash on the grill last fall and can't believe that I have been missing out on it all this time.  Thanks for posting the recipe.  I've gotta try that soon.

    You can even roast them whole. Just punch a bunch of holes in it with a fork.

    Make sure you have a sharp, heavy knife yo complete the cut. I use a cleaver.
