This stuffed spaghetti squash recipe is definitely for those who want to try something new. It can be done in multiple ways. We chose to fill our spaghetti squash with cheese, sour cream, and spinach. You can also add ground beef, chicken, bacon, or any other combination of keto-friendly foods to make it a complete dinner meal.

Spinach Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash has higher carb amount per serving than other types of summer squash such as zucchini. As a rule of thumb, the sweeter the vegetable is, the more sugar and carb it has.

1 cup (101g) of raw spaghetti squash has 31 calories, 0.6g fat, 0.6g protein, and 7g carb which is not that bad, especially if you know how to save your daily carb for a higher-carb meal. One medium-size spaghetti squash should make approximately 4 cups, which is what we will use for this recipe.
