Prime Rib & Tomato

Prime Rib Basil Alfredo on Spaghetti Squash

A decadent keto-friendly dish perfect for special occasions.


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb cooked prime rib, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, and place it cut side down on a baking sheet. Roast for 30-40 minutes, or until the flesh is tender and easily shredded with a fork.
  2. While the spaghetti squash is roasting, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside, leaving the bacon fat in the skillet.
  3. In the same skillet, add the butter and minced garlic. Sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the heavy cream to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the Parmesan cheese until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  5. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.
  6. Stir in the chopped basil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Once the spaghetti squash is done roasting, use a fork to scrape out the strands into a large bowl.
  8. Place the spaghetti squash strands on serving plates, top with slices of prime rib, and pour the Alfredo sauce over the top.
  9. Sprinkle the crispy bacon pieces over the dish and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
