What is Spaghetti Squash Baked Feta Pasta?
Spaghetti Squash Baked Feta is a dish that combines roasted spaghetti squash with a savory and creamy sauce made from baked feta cheese, tomatoes, garlic, and herbs.
It's a low-carb, gluten-free alternative to traditional pasta dishes that's both delicious and healthy. The spaghetti squash strands are a perfect vehicle for the rich and tangy feta cheese sauce, making this a satisfying and flavorful meal.
Ingredients and Substitution
- Spaghetti Squash - this is the main star of the dish but if you'd rather have regular pasta, you can try my original baked feta pasta recipe that took over the internet.
- Feta - this is the cheese that's best but you could also use goat cheese or Boursin.
- Garlic - Fresh garlic is best but you could use shallots if you had those.
- Cherry Tomatoes - grape tomatoes also work. regular beef steak tomatoes are a little watery but can work if that's all you have.
- Basil - fresh basil is my fav but you could use rosemary, oregano or thyme.
- Balsamic glaze - you can make your own but i like to use the storebought one. It adds a little bit of sweetness to balance out the salty feta and not so great winter tomatoes.
- Olive oil - avocado oil also works.
- Kosher salt - Kosher is best for cooking but you could use another kind if you prefer.
