  • First, start by thoroughly washing the squash.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the squash open.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Scrape the seeds out from the inside using a spoon.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the flesh of the spaghetti squash.
  • Season the inside of the squash with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, paprika and oregano. Make sure to coat the flesh completely in the seasoning blend.
  • Place the squash inside the preheated air fryer and air fry for 20-25 minutes at 360 degrees F. You’ll know the squash is done once the flesh is fork tender.
  • Transfer the squash and squeeze some fresh lime juice over it if desired. Top with fresh parsley and serve with your choice of meat or a fresh salad like this Arugula Avocado Salad with Homemade Lime Vinaigrette.


  • Use ripe spaghetti squash for this recipe. Make sure the squash you’re purchasing is firm and doesn’t have any bruising or cracks on the exterior.
  • The lime juice is optional and I squeezed just a little bit over the top of my cooked noodles to add a little flavor.
  • Check for doneness at the 20 minute mark. Try piercing the flesh of the squash with a fork. If it’s easily pierced with the fork, it’s ready. Otherwise continue cooking until it is finished. Cooking times may vary depending on the size of your spaghetti squash.
  • Always read your air fryer manual before using it.
