Sauteed, Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Pretty much anytime we use the oven, we tuck vegetables into the nooks and crannies. Other times we simply load the oven with trays of vegetables and get them roasted and ready for another meal. This is especially handy when you have a large squash or even two.

We had picked up a small spaghetti squash and threw it into the oven along with whatever else we were roasting at the time. Tonight we took the roasted squash from the refrigerator and made a simple yet delicious side dish to go along with turkey leftover's from Thanksgiving.

Sauteed Roasted Spaghetti Squash
by the seat of my pants

1 small roasted spaghetti squash
1 T olive oil
2 t butter
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
fresh minced parsley

Cut the roasted squash in half lengthwise, with a spoon, remove the seeds.

Heat the oil and butter in a wide flat bottom saute pan, swirl the pan to coat evenly. Using a fork, gently separate the strands of squash, letting the squash fall into the pan.

Season with garlic salt and fresh pepper, toss gently to mix with the oil and butter and seasoning.

Sauteed pre-roasted Spaghetti Squash, easy, fast and delicious!

Continue to heat until hot, sprinkle with the minced parsley.

  1. We love roasted veggies, but I've never really thought about roasting them ahead for another meal. How smart is that to have the spaghetti squash already cooked?

  2. Like the idea of roasting pumpkin before using it in another dish. Great flavour boost I'm sure. Cheers from Carole's Chatter!

  3. Yummy! I'm finally learning to like squash (now in my 50s) and roasted spaghetti squash is one of my new discoveries. Good idea to roast it ahead!

  4. I've never tried spaghetti squash but I'm curious. This looks pretty tasty and pretty simple. I'll have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love to roast veggies, too! I just discovered roasting last year and love to do dinners that way.

    That said, I usually cook spaghetti squash in the microwave. And I used to prepare it with fresh parmesan on it, but now 2 of us are diary your recipe looks delicious! I'm going to try it thanks!
