Spaghetti Squash Divine

“This is healthy & delicious spaghetti squash, creamy and bursting with flavor. The kids gobbled it up and didn't even ask what the 'yucky green stuff' was (leek). My mother-in-law absconded with the leftovers and didn't leave us a drop!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut spaghetti squash in half and scoop out seeds. Place, cut side down in a baking pan. Add approximately 1 inches water to bottom of the pan and bake for 1 hr at 350 degrees.
  2. While squash is baking, sizzle the oil & margarine or butter over medium heat. Mash the roasted garlic into a paste and throw it in the oil with the leeks. Saute until leeks are soft but not browned & garlic paste is incorporated, about 4 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle flour into leek mixture. Stir until absorbed, then immediately add the milk all at once, stirring constantly. Cook & stir until thickened & bubbly. Add kosher salt & pepper to taste.
  4. When squash is fork tender, scoop it out of skins and toss with the sauce.
