Anything related to this is very important

Now, the internet diet police will tell you that squash is off limits on keto, but spaghetti squash is surprisingly low in carbs – and even more so when you distract the recipe with some protein. In fact, according to the USDA, spaghetti squash is 5.5 net carbs per cup. That’s not too bad at all if you just enjoy in moderation. Plus, even if you’re not on keto, you’re probably not going to eat an entire spaghetti squash in one sitting.

Most of my keto spaghetti squash recipes start off by roasting a fresh spaghetti squash. It’s super easy, just follow these simple instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Slice your spaghetti squash in half the long way, using a large knife. Remove the seeds and goop.
  3. Place both sides, squash side up, on a baking sheet and bake for an hour at 350.

It’s ready when you can easily use a spoon or fork to scoop out the innards. If you want to serve your recipe in the shell of the squash, be careful when removing the “spaghetti”, it’s easy to poke a hole in the rind once cooked.

There is something satisfying about scooping spaghetti squash out of its shell after it’s been roasted. It’s like nature’s perfect little noodle and a great alternative to the ever-popular zoodle made out of zucchini or summer squash. The best part is you don’t need any fancy kitchen gadgets, the consistency is perfect every time.

Now that your squash is roasted, try one of these amazing keto spaghetti squash recipes:

Roasted Chicken + Creamy Cajun Spaghetti Squash Pasta

The other day a co-worker came into work with leftover Cajun Chicken Pasta from Chilis. Back when I was carbing it up, that was basically my favorite dish from any restaurant chain ever. So as the smell wafted through the air during lunchtime, I planned my attack for dinner.

The cream sauce is easy – heavy cream all day, baby. If you want it thinner, add chicken broth, but in this case, we want it creamy, so we let it cook for about 20 minutes until it reduces to a nice, thick creamy sauce that sticks to the noodles instead of sliding off. I made this twice this week just to make sure I got everything right, and now it’s perfection in my mind.
