PF Kitchen: Cheesy Spinach-&-Artichoke Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Edwardsville and Glen Carbon, IL Nutrition Coach and Gym





  • 1 (2 ½ to 3 pound) spaghetti squash, cut in half lengthwise and seeds removed 

  • 3 tablespoons water, divided 

  • 1 (5 ounce) package baby spinach 

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and chopped 

  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed and softened 

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided 

  • ¼ teaspoon salt 

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper 

  • Crushed red pepper & chopped fresh basil for garnish 





  1. Place squash cut-side down in a microwave-safe dish; add 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, uncovered, on High until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place squash halves cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400°F until tender, 40 to 50 minutes.) 

  2. Meanwhile, combine spinach and the remaining 1 tablespoon water in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. 

  3. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. 

  4. Use a fork to scrape the squash from the shells into the bowl. Place the shells on a baking sheet. Stir artichoke 
hearts, cream cheese, 1⁄4 cup Parmesan, salt and pepper into the squash mixture. Divide it between the squash shells and top with the remaining 1⁄4 cup Parmesan. Broil until the cheese is golden brown, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper and basil, if desired.
