  • 2 lbs spaghetti squash, sliced in half

  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 2 oz. cream cheese

  • 2 oz. shredded parmesan cheese

  • 7 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder or minced garlic cloves

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 365°F (185°C).
  • Place halves with cut side up in a large baking dish or baking tray. Scoop out the seeds and fibers with a spoon. Brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, until soft.
  • Heat a large frying pan and melt some butter. Add the ground meat and spices. Fry for about 15 minutes, until browned.
  • Reduce the heat slightly. Add cream, cream cheese, parmesan, and two-thirds of the mozzarella. Bring to a simmer for a few minutes until creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Once the squash is ready, remove from the oven and raise the temperature to 435°F Loosen the pumpkin flesh with a fork but without scraping it out. Gently press down the flesh and pour over the creamy chicken sauce. Top with the rest of the mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake in the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese gets a nice golden color. Season with freshly ground black pepper and finely chopped parsley.


  • The time of baking squash might be longer, depending on its size. Just make sure that the squash is tender when removed from the oven.
