The idea of using a spaghetti squash to make SCD “pasta” is not a new one. Starting with Elaine’s book in 1992, we have seen many variations. The appeal of this one is in the ease of preparation.


1 spaghetti squash
2 teaspoons (10 g) ghee, divided
1–2 small tomatoes, chopped fine
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped fine
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped fine
¼ cup (6 g) fresh basil leaves, chopped fine
salt and black pepper to taste


1. Cut the spaghetti squash in half length-wise
2. Clean the seeds out of both halves
3. Place a teaspoon of ghee in the seed cavity of each half
4. Mix together the tomatoes, onion, garlic, and basil
5. Place this mixture on top of ghee within the seed cavity
6. Add salt and pepper to taste
7. Cover the spaghetti squash in foil and bake it in oven at 350ºF (180°C or gas mark 4) for approximately 75-90 minutes, or until a fork penetrates the squash easily
8. Once you remove it, gently scrape out the cooked squash – it should come out like string or thin ribbon strands–just like spaghetti


4-6 servings
