Spaghetti squash is one of those veggies that's actually really tasty- if you cook it right. When I've made it in the instant pot and oven in the past, I was left with a soggy mess. Thankfully I cracked the code, and it's all thanks to my good friend, the air fryer! Air fryer spaghetti squash allows the outside to get crispy, avoiding a soggy base.

Is spaghetti squash low carb?

It still has carbs, but only half the amount in traditional pasta. I love regular pasta and spaghetti squash, and sometimes even mix them! It's totally up to your needs and what you're feeling in the moment.

Can you eat spaghetti squash seeds?

Yes, you can roast them with olive oil and seasoning, just like you would do with pumpkin seeds. Try out this recipe!

Is spaghetti squash good for you?

Spaghetti squash is a great source of fiber, making it a great alternative to pasta if you are looking for a new vegetable to try! I recommend pairing with veggies, protein and healthy fat for a full meal.


Mix everything together and store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container. To reheat, microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds.
