Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 45 mins

Total Time: 1hr

Servings: 4 servings


1 3 1/2 – 4 pound spaghetti squash

3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)

2 large shallots thinly sliced

1 pound Brussels sprouts shaved or thinly sliced

3 garlic cloves minced

salt and pepper to taste



Preheat your oven to 400F/200C. Slice the spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Coat the inside with a little olive oil and salt and pepper, then bake for 40-50 minutes.

When the spaghetti squash has cooked for about 30 minutes, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat in a large pan. Add the shallots and cook, stirring frequently, for about 8 minutes or until lightly golden and crispy.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the crispy shallots to a paper towel to drain.

Add the brussels sprouts and minced garlic to the same pan and saute for 4-5 minutes. You may need to add another splash of oil as well.

When the spaghetti squash is done, remove it from the oven and use a fork to scrape out the flesh into a bowl. Add the sauteed Brussels sprouts and crispy shallots to the bowl, and season with additional salt and pepper.

Stir all of the ingredients together and serve!
