    2. Marinara sauce: It gives the best flavor to this dish.
    3. Vegan Meatballs: Homemade or store-bought will work in this recipe.
    4. Vegan Cheese: I highly suggest using vegan parmesan cheese it pairs well with everything.

Make spaghetti using squash


Perhaps you are asking yourself how to prepare this spaghetti squash. Just like, how do I make the squash like spaghetti? Or is it really possible to turn squash into spaghetti? Stop asking yourself this! Below, I will teach you how to make spaghetti squash.


    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet.
    2. Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds.
    3. Sprinkle with olive oil and season with kosher salt and black pepper.
    4. Place on the baking sheet upside down. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
    5. Using a fork, scrape the squash to make spaghetti. (see the photo)


Of course, you can them in advance, store them in an airtight container, and in refrigerating them for 1-3 days. To share with you I love making them in advance.


I am a busy person and sometimes I don’t have time to cook or to spend a lot of time in the kitchen I usually make this vegan spaghetti squash that’s why I prepare them in advance and I just reheat them for at least 5-6 minutes and drizzled with everything.
