Slow Cooker Spaghetti Squash with Pesto

  • Cooking Time:

    4 Hours on LOW
  • Servings:



1 Spaghetti Squash
1/2 c. Pesto Sauce, more to taste
1/2 c. Water
Salt & Pepper
1 Tomato, seeded and diced (optional)

My fam­i­ly and I are a lit­tle carb-con­scious these days and one way to get our pas­ta fix is to eat spaghet­ti squash. It’s super easy to make in the slow cook­er plus it’s so tasty that even the kids love it.

I love this recipe with pesto sauce because you can eat it warm or cold — a per­fect, year-round meal.


  1. Wash and dry squash
  2. Cut squash in half cross­wise. Scoop out seeds and strings.
  3. Place squash side by side in a 6-Quart slow cook­er.
  4. Pour 1/2 c. water around squash.
  5. Cov­er and cook on LOW for 4 hours.
  6. Care­ful­ly remove squash (it will be hot!) and use a fork to scrape into a bowl. It will cre­ate “noo­dles” as you scrape.
  7. Sea­son light­ly with sea salt & fresh ground pep­per.
  8. Add diced toma­to (option­al) and pesto sauce. Toss light­ly. (Note: Cost­co has a deli­cious pesto in the refrig­er­at­ed sec­tion if you’re in a pinch!)
  9. Serve imme­di­ate­ly, or refrig­er­ate in a cov­ered con­tain­er for a cold “pas­ta” sal­ad type dish.  Enjoy!
