Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Meatballs

  • Makes: 6 servings
  • Serving Size: 5 meatballs, 2/3 cup spaghetti squash, and about 2/3 cup sauce
  • Yields: about 30 meatballs, 4 cups spaghetti squash, 3 3/4 cups sauce
  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Stand: 20 mins
  • Bake: 50 mins 400°

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Meatballs



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat inside of the spaghetti squash with cooking spray. Place squash halves, cut sides down, on a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake about 50 minutes or until squash is soft. Let cool slightly. Use a fork to separate the strands of squash.
  2. Meanwhile, for meatballs, place bulgur in a large bowl. Pour the boiling water over bulgur; let stand about 20 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. Add egg, ground beef, garlic, and 1 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning. Mix to combine. Shape into 1-inch meatballs.
  3. Lightly coat a very large skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs to hot skillet; cook until browned, turning occasionally to brown evenly. Add tomatoes, sugar, crushed red pepper (if desired), the salt, and the remaining 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 7 to 10 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken and meatballs are cooked through (160 degrees F).*
  4. Serve meatballs and sauce over squash. Top with grated Parmesan cheese. If desired, sprinkle with basil.

From the Test Kitchen


The internal color of a meatball is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef meatball cooked to 160 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a meatball, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of the meatball.
