This is a go to fuss free dinner recipe with no guilt, because it’s a quick easy healthy dinner. After a day of grocery shopping, the last thing I want to do is stand in the kitchen. This gluten free spaghetti squash recipe is a staple in our house because of its simplicity, and it’s an easy way to sneak more veggies into my child’s diet too.

These are my daughter’s favorite kind of noodles. If you are looking for the perfect fall dinner ideas, then give this easy healthy fall dinner recipe a try, and let me know what you think!

If you are looking for bone broth powder recipes, I do add a bit of bone broth powder to the sauce because it’s a great place to hide it. We are attempting to heal baby tooth decay naturally for my toddler. This is purely for health benefits and is not necessary for flavor, so it’s completely optional.

Gluten Free Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Quick Easy Healthy Dinner for 4



1 Olive oil or Butter

1 Large organic Spaghetti Squash

1 Medium Red Bell Pepper, finely diced

Celtic Salt to your liking


1lb mild italian sausage

1 qt of your favorite spaghetti sauce

3 scoops of bone broth powder


organic raw kefir (optional)

fresh basil (optional)



Split spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, and remove seeds. Place halves on baking sheet or casserole dish, and drizzle with oil or spread butter on the open halves. Then roast at 350 F for approximately 45 minutes.

In a saute pan, add a bit of oil and brown Italian sausage. Then add your organic cheater spaghetti sauce and let simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Then turn off heat and mix in bone broth powder (optional).

When squash is easily scraped with fork, it is done. Scrape out the spaghetti squash with a fork and transfer to a bowl, add butter, salt to your liking, diced red bell pepper, toss, then serve. Add kefir and homegrown basil as garnish.

Tip: Save the seeds and make roasted spaghetti squash seeds. It’s super easy and a delicious healthy snack.  Rinse seeds in colander. Add a little coconut oil and sprinkle of salt, then roast for about 15-20 mins on a baking sheet at 350 F.


It’s so simple but very flavorful, and is my quick dish when I am in need of ideas for lazy healthy dinners. The squash takes a bit of time, but prep time is very low. The actual time I spend in kitchen is about 10 mins to prepare it.

Having a toddler I am always trying to find ways to sneak more variety into her diet. Her favorite gluten free noodle is the butter roasted spaghetti squash, out of the many gluten free pasta options we have tried.

This is a delicious super easy nutritious meal. If you are like me and need more lazy but healthy dinners, then I hope you enjoy this Gluten Free Spaghetti Squash Recipe too. What’s your favorite lazy gluten free dinners?
