Creamy Smoked Salmon Spaghetti Baked in Golden Squash

Ingredients (for 2 as main course)


2 golden nugget squash (small pumpkins)


100g spaghetti, cooked and drained per package direction


Olive oil


1 shallot, peeled and thinly sliced


1 clove garlic, crushed


100 (1/2 c) white wine


200ml sour cream


½ cup freshly grated parmesan


120g smoked salmon, cut into small pieces


Dill, chopped – to taste. I love it so I put quite a bit.




1. Preheat oven to 180C. Cut spaghetti into shorter pieces.

2. Heat oil and cook shallot & garlic until soften. Stir in wine, simmer until almost evaporated. Add cream and cheese, cook slightly thickened. Toss through smoked salmon, pasta and dill. Seasoning to taste.

3. Cut the top of squashes, scoop out the seed. Fill the squashes with pasta mixture. With the cap on, bake them in oven for 40 minutes or until the pumpkin flesh softens. Remove the top at the last 10 mins of baking to achieve the golden crust.

4. Serve hot.
