 Spaghetti Squash Primavera

I love Italian cuisine! I mean who doesn’t love combining meat, fresh vegetables, garlic, oil, and homemade tomato sauce? A ton of the dishes I make are Italian-inspired. This dish fulfills that delicious pasta craving, without the pasta! My version of “pasta” primavera is made with spaghetti squash and is the perfect combination of garlic, spices, meat, and vegetables!

  • 1 head broccoli, sliced into bite-sized florets
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, more to taste

Recipe Notes

  • We recommend grilling, pan-frying, or baking your chicken with a generous amount of seasoning. Pat the chicken dry. Rub with sea salt, ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Either grill or pan-fry for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through, or bake at 400 degrees °F for 10 minutes or until no pink remains.
  • Cook the shrimp: In a small skillet heat 1 teaspoon oil of choice over medium-high heat. Add in shrimp. Season with sea salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes on both sides, or until pink and fully cooked.

    Hi. I’m making this recipe…it calls for 1/2 onion, chopped, but no instructions on what to do with them. Do you just put them in raw or saute first?

  3. Gloria says:

    Do you know how many calories are in a serving?

  4. Deb says:

    Does this go into the oven at some point? I notice first step is to preheat oven, but no instructions for putting into oven.

  5. Cheryl says:

    Delicious! We love garlic so I added a little more than suggested. Used lots of sun dried tomatoes. Love the fresh spinach! We used extra large shrimp and it was all fantastic ! Will make again for sure!

  6. Karen says:

    I want to try this but I don’t know how long to roast the spaghetti squash. Also, I have never seen a spaghetti squash. Is it fairly common in the grocery store or do I need to go to a store that has more speciality foods?
    Thanks!

  7. Malissa says:

    Hubby and I made this tonight! So yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Making this for dinner tonight, always on the hunt for “gluten free alternatives”, and this is MUCH cheaper than shelling out for gluten free pasta! Healthier too! Thanks a bunch:)

  9. Megan says:

    How many servings is this recipe?

  10. Pam says:

    I made this using 16oz of boneless skinless chicken breast . Using all other ingredients except sundried tomatoes I used fresh cherry tomatoes from my garden added zucchini and Parmesan cheese. I calculated the calories in recipe calculator http://www.sparkpeople.com/ as 4 servings with the calories per serving of 255.3.. This was very good and will keep the recipe and maybe use shrimp or both next time.

  11. Kelly Dougan says:

    Made this tonight and added asparagus. So delicious. And so easy! The only think I would have done differently was cook the asaparagus a little with the onions and garlic before adding the squash. Squash got a little mushy but still good.

  12. Elizabeth says:

    You mention tomato sauce in the recipe description, but then nothing of sauce is noted in the instructions? Are you supposed to add sauce, or canned diced tomatoes?

  13. Jennifer says:

    i made this tonight and it was very good. It made lots of food. Does this recipe freeze well, so I can save some for later?

  14. Annie says:

    Made this for dinner and my family loved it! Thanks for sharing.

  15. Heather says:

    Just made this tonight and it was delicious!! And super easy 🙂 Thank you!

  16. Alexia says:

    I made this last night, and we loved it. Great recipe!

  17. Laura says:

    That was amazingly delicious. Thank you. I cooked the onions and garlic in water instead of oil. I figured I was getting enough oil from the sun dried tomatoes that were in olive oil. I seriously can’t believe how good that was. Yum.

  18. Colleen says:

    How do you roast the spaghetti squash? How long do you cook and at what temperature? I tried to do this a long time ago and found the squash to be impossible to cut in half. It’s like trying to cut a rock. Help please!!

  19. Cathy Alford says:

    Hi! I’m making this now and wondering what I do with the ground garlis and red pepper. Is there a certain way to prepare shrimp or just dump it in with the veggies and let it turn pink? Thanks!

  20. Janine says:

    Spaghetti squash is already spaghetti format. Do I still need to roast it first?

  21. Emily says:

    I will be honest the ingredients seem out of order and the directions are confusing. I’m trying to make it right now and its not going well. I’m not a first time cook and I will need to write my own directions or just never make this again.
