Preheat oven to 450ºF. Peel onion, halve, and cut into small dice. Mince garlic. Rinse carrot and cut into ¼-inch dice. Halve squash lengthwise. Scoop out and discard seeds. Pat beef dry with paper towel.
Roast Spaghetti Squash
Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over cut sides of squash and season with spice mix, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Arrange cut-side down on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast until tender, 25-35 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.
While spaghetti squash roasts, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium high-sided pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add beef and season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Cook, breaking up, until browned, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to plate, discarding any fat in pan.
Wipe pan from beef clean and add ½ tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add onion, garlic, and carrot. Sauté until softening, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, until fully combined, 1 minute more. Return beef to pot and stir in chicken stock and red wine. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium high and simmer until liquid is reduced by half, 8-10 minutes.
Pull Spaghetti Squash
Using a fork or tongs, rake roasted squash flesh to create spaghetti-like strands, raking back and forth until you've reached the outer skins, and place in a medium bowl. Taste and add more salt and pepper as desired.
Stir heavy cream into Bolognese and simmer over medium-high heat until warmed through, about 1 minute more. Remove from heat and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Spoon beef Bolognese over squash noodles for a classic spaghetti presentation, or gently stir squash into sauce before plating. Garnish with Parmesan and dig in!
