Spaghetti squash and halloumi lasagne

It's slowly starting to be autumnal and squashes and pumpkins are making a heavier appearance. I simply love it! Now it's time to make comfort food and spend quiet evenings at home. Today I want to go out to town though, as I have some shopping to do, and then also want to visit a brew house. It seems to be sunny for now, only a bit windy and it might rain later.

I made a lasagne again after a long while, and thought it would be nice with some spaghetti squash and halloumi. It was indeed tasty and hit the spot perfectly. I just made a basic tomato sauce, where I mixed the roasted squash, and then layered it with the halloumi and lasagne sheets.

Here is my recipe, if you would like to know how I made the dish.

Spaghetti squash and halloumi lasagne


1 spaghetti squash
Olive oil
1 onion
3 garlic cloves
400 ml tinned tomatoes
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 vegetable stock cube
Fresh basil leaves
250 g halloumi
Vegetable oil
150 g grated cheese
Lasagne sheets


Cut the spaghetti squash in half, brush it with olive oil and roast in the oven until the flesh is tender. You can save the seeds and toast them.

Chop the onion and garlic finely and fry them in a saucepan until soft. Add the tinned tomatoes and seasoning and simmer to a tomato sauce.

Slice the halloumi and fry the slices in vegetable oil until golden brown.

Scoop the spaghetti squash and add it to the tomato sauce. Layer the sauce with lasagne sheets and halloumi and cover the bake with cheese.

Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes until done.

Enjoy with a crunchy salad or crispy bread on the side!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. That lasagne does look very autumnal. I am not that keen on spaghetti squash, but would give it a go with butternut perhaps, the halloumi is an interesting addition. Wish you had shown us a slice :) PS I will sharing my EatYOurGreens recipe tomorrow made with the last of the homegrown courgettes. Have a good w/e, and hope it stays dry while your out and about today. We are staying firmly indoors.

  2. I like reading about how you use haloumi - you are so much more adventurous with it than me - I would like to try it in a lasagne - hope you have a good weekend - lovely weather here today


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
