Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

Spaghetti Squash Carbonara
  • 1 pinch sea salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 large spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 pound bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 leek, cleaned and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, or to taste, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Sprinkle sea salt and ground black pepper into the bottom of a baking dish. Put squash halves into the baking dish with the cut sides facing downward. Pour enough water into the pan to be about 1/4-inch deep.
  3. Roast squash in preheated oven until flesh is tender, 60 to 90 minutes. Shred the flesh from the squash into strands and to a colander to drain excess liquid.
  4. Beat eggs, Parmesan cheese, and 3 tablespoons parsley together in a bowl.
  5. Put bacon into a skillet and place over medium heat; cook and stir until browned but not yet crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain excess fat from the pan, retaining about 2 tablespoons. Cook and stir leek with the bacon until soft, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  6. Pour white wine over the bacon mixture; cook until most of the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Stir squash into the bacon mixture; cook and stir until any remaining moisture from the squash evaporates, 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Gently stir the egg mixture into the squash mixture; cook until the liquid makes a creamy sauce and is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with pepper. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan cheese.
