Brown Sugar Spaghetti Squash

Sharing is caring!

Today I want to share with you my recipe for brown sugar spaghetti squash.  One of the things I love most in the fall is all of the fresh garden produce!  

 

One of my favorite things that we get from the garden is spaghetti squash.  If you haven’t tried it, you must!  This brown sugar spaghetti squash makes a wonderful side dish for any meal.  You know how people do marshmallows or pecans to dress up sweet potatoes?  Same idea.  It’s sweet!  Fall squash can actually taste AMAZING if you do it right!!!

Ingredients:

1 large spaghetti squash

1/4 to 1/2 cup of butter, melted (don’t melt until the squash is done in the slow cooker)

Approximately 1/2 cup brown sugar (you can use more or less, as desired)

 

 

 

Directions:

Slow cook the spaghetti squash on low for 5-6 hours (I put about 1/2 cup of water in the bottom of the slow cooker before I put the spaghetti squash in).

When you are just about ready to serve, melt the butter (I usually just do that in a bowl in the microwave).

Once the spaghetti squash is done slow cooking, you just slice it in half lengthwise with a large knife…easy peasy!   SO much better than trying to cut it raw.  You practically need a machete to do that!

 

 

 

Remove the seeds.

Scrape the spaghetti squash to make it more like…well, spaghetti.

 

 

 

Drizzle the melted butter over both halves of the spaghetti squash.  Next, sprinkle brown sugar over top and lightly spread it around with a fork.

Brown sugar spaghetti squash is delicious to just eat by itself, but I usually serve it as a side to pasta or some sort of meat (usually grilled). 

 

 

Brown sugar spaghetti squash is delicious to just eat by itself, but I usually serve it as a side to pasta or some sort of meat (usually grilled).  I wish you could taste this through a computer screen, because if you could I know that you would run out and buy a spaghetti squash (if you don’t already have one) and make this!

 

 

I hope you love this brown sugar spaghetti squash. It sure is a favorite at our house. Did you get some spaghetti squash out of your garden this year? How has your garden done this year?  Tell me…I’d love to know!

 

See you next time!
