Brown Sugar Spaghetti Squash is baked to perfection and served topped with a buttery mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

I love cooking with Squash, and some of the popular dishes I made with it are Butternut Squash Trifle and Squash Stuffed Pinwheels.

Brown Sugar Spaghetti Squash is one of the easiest and healthier desserts you can make! Many people are surprised that this delicious vegetable can be part of sweet recipes, but it’s all about how you dress it up. I like mine served with a delicious, buttery concoction of melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Also, feel free to mix in raisins, walnuts or pecans for a nice chewy and crunchy texture. To make a vegan version, just use vegan butter. You can also play around and use less butter and sugar, adjust to your taste.

 How Do You Cook Spaghetti Squash In The Oven?

  • First, rinse the outside of the squash under running wash and scrub with a vegetable brush.
  • Also, dry it completely.
  • Then, cut the squash in half lengthwise from stem to tail.
  • Scrape out the seeds using a spoon.
  • Next, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste if you are making a savory recipe. Use coconut oil if you are making a sweet recipe.
  • Place squash, cut-side down, onto a lightly oiled baking dish or pan.
  • Roast at 375 degrees F until tender, for about 35-45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let rest until cool enough to handle.
  • Using a fork, scrape the flesh to create long strands.

Wonderful. I have never done spaghetti squash before. It turned out beautiful. Sweet and delicious. I was nervous about cutting the squash in half lengthwise since there were so many comments about the chance of losing a finger. I used my sharpest and best french chef's knife and held the squash firmly from one end and inserted the knife in the other end and cut straight down with the point. Then turned the squash around and completed the halving process. Fingers and hands never near the blade. Worked! No blood. Might be a tip to others.
