Spaghetti Squash Frittata  

Serves 4  


· 1 cup spaghetti squash (cooked per instructions below) 

· 4 eggs, lightly beaten 

· 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley 

· 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese 

· 1 cup finely chopped red onion 

· 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic 

· ½ teaspoon salt 

· ½ teaspoon black pepper 

· ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper 

· 1 tablespoon butter  


1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. 

2. Pierce the whole shell of the squash several times with a large fork or skewer, then place it in a baking dish. 

3. Place dish in preheated oven and bake for approximately 1 hour, or until flesh is tender. 

4. Remove from oven and cover with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes. Uncover it and allow squash to cool for about 20 minutes so that it will be easier to handle. 

5. Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. With a fork, “comb” out strands of squash. Set aside. 

6. Preheat broiler to high. 

7. Combine squash and all other ingredients except butter in a large mixing bowl. 

8. Melt butter in a large oven-safe nonstick skillet. Pour squash mixture into the skillet and cook over low heat for about 9-10 minutes. 

9. Place skillet in preheated broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until top is browned. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
