Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled*
  • 1 cup alfredo jarred or homemade
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with foil.
    Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and innards and discard.
    Brush olive oil over inside of squash. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
    Turn over and roast face down on second backing sheet (rind up) for 40-45 minutes until fork tender. 
    Once finished, take a fork and gently "fluff" up the cooked insides creating noodle like pieces. Do this to both halves leaving the fluffed up squash inside the outer rind.
    Top each half with homemade alfredo and bacon pieces and stir up, again leaving inside the outer rind like a bowl. 
    Sprinkle cheese over top and place back in the oven. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
    Let stand for about 5 minutes before eating.

Notes

*Cooking the bacon in the oven while the squash is also cooking saves time and creates less mess. Simply line a baking sheet with foil, place strips of bacon on sheet and bake. Time will vary depending on desired done-ness.
