If you’re not familiar with Singapore Noodles it is a meal you typically find in Chinese or Cantonese restaurants. Despite its name it is not originally a dish from Singapore. It uses a lot of Asian flavors which is probably why I love it so much. I’m a big fan of Asian cuisine and love it’s flavors. Singapore Noodles usually calls for rice noodles in most recipes.

I wanted to make this recipe healthy without compromising its original flavors. I stuck to the spices and oils it calls for so that I could still get that original taste you find in the authentic noodles. I decided to use additional veggies than Β usual recipes call for. I’ve seen different recipes use different vegetables in their noodles so I just decided to use a combination of these veggies. To kick it up a notch and make it a bit more nutritious I decided to use spaghetti squash for the noodles.

Substituting the rice noodles for spaghetti squash didn’t compromise the taste at all. It’s pretty hard to even tell it’s not regular noodles you’re eating. Making spaghetti squash is super easy too. If you’ve never made it before don’t be intimidated by it. Once you try it you’ll see how easy it really is to make. Just preheat your oven at 350 degrees. Cut your squash in half the long way and scoop out the seeds. Rub some olive oil to both sides and season with some salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. You can season it with whatever spices you would like this is just my go to way to season my spaghetti squash. Stick it in the oven for about 30-40 minutes until it is tender. Let it cool for a while. Now this is where you make magic happen. Take a fork and scrape out the inside of the squash. You should see some noodles coming out of your squash. That’s it! Super easy and super simple.

Once you have your spaghetti squash noodles cooked you can make anything with them. You can pair it with some chicken, meatballs, turkey meatballs and some pasta sauce. Or you can get creative and try these Singapore Spaghetti Squash Noodles. This is a great recipe for when you’re looking for something new or something different.
