Summer is unofficially here and we’ve been loving the grill lately! Spaghetti squash is one of the only squashes I still love to eat in the summer, and this recipe is perfect for the warm months. This is something you can throw together pretty quickly on a weeknight too!

Spaghetti squash can be cooked one of two ways, if you’re still halving it and roasting it you absolutely have to try this method that I have been using! There are a bunch of tutorials with photos on Pinterest (like this one) but essentially you’re slicing the squash into 3/4 inch circles, drizzling with olive oil, and a few twists of salt and pepper and roasting on 375 until they are tender. This is a game changer. The squash circles cook in about 30 minutes and the noodles are so much longer! You’ll never roast a spaghetti squash the same way again.

Ready to whip up a veggie bowl? Here’s what you need…

  • Cooked spaghetti squash (use the method above!)
  • 2 cups of chopped veggies (or more depending on how many servings you’re making)
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Aluminum foil

Here’s what you do…

  1. You can cook these foil packs on the grill – or – in the oven. Start by cutting a large sheet of aluminum foil, and transferring your veggies to the middle of it.
  2. Put 3-4 pats of butter (or a generous drizzle of olive oil) on top of your veggies
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  4. Fold over edges like a christmas gift! I fold the 2 long sides, then the short 2, and leave a little tiny hole in the middle for air to escape.
  5. If you’re cooking these on the grill, you want to use the top rack if it’s available, and get it on the grill before your meats as it’ll take a good 20 minutes. If you’re cooking them in the oven, cook on 375 for about 20 minutes – I like to open them up at the end and let the broiler crisp them up (totally optional)
  6. Cooking times will vary based upon how many veggies you use, and your cooking method. Expect to cook at least 20 minutes but up to 30 total.
  7. Toss with spaghetti squash and more salt and pepper if desired and serve warm! This would be delicious with a little sprinkle of cheese as well. Enjoy!
