Sausage Spaghetti Squash with Apple Cider Glaze is hitting the dinner table! Made with Italian sausage, parmesan cheese and reduced apple cider, this spaghetti squash is a filling meal.



For Roasting the Squash

  • 2 spaghetti squash, split in half lengthwise, seeds removed
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper

For the Filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb. Italian sausage
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus and extra 1/2 cup for topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cider


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the 4 halves of the spaghetti squash onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Season the spaghetti squash halves with the salt, pepper and olive oil. Place cut sides down and roast for 45 minutes.
  3. While the squash is roasting, brown the sausage in a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Add the apple cider to a small pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Turn the heat down to a simmer and reduce for 20 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  5. When the squash is tender, shred the inside of the squash with a fork until all the strands are separated.
  6. Place the strands of squash in a large bowl. Add the browned sausage, parmesan cheese and the reduced cider. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Divide the filling into each of the 4 squash halves, top with the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and place back in the oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the squash from the oven and top with chopped parsley and red pepper flakes if using.
