Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1 spaghetti squash about 4 pounds
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 ounces baby spinach fresh or defrosted if frozen
  • 1 cup canned or frozen artichokes drained and chopped
  • 3 ounces cream cheese or 1/3 cup cashew cream with 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast for dairy-free
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese omit for dairy-free
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken optional
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella or gruyere cheese omit for dairy-free


  • Cook spaghetti squash using these directions.
  • Meanwhile, make spinach and artichoke mixture: Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, add onion and garlic and cook until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in spinach and artichokes and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper and add cream cheese (or cashew cream) and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Preheat the broiler on high.
  • Once spaghetti squash is cooked and cooled enough to handle scoop out the squash into a large bowl. Add parmesan cheese (if using), chicken (if using) and spinach artichoke mixture. Mix together gently until fully combined.
  • Either divide the mixture into the now empty squash shells and top with mozzarella cheese or place in an 8" x 8" oven safe casserole dish.
  • Place under the broiler until the cheese and melted and the mixture is completely heated through.
