Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Place spaghetti squash cut-side down on a baking tray.
Bake squash in the preheated oven until soft and easily pierced with a knife, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool until easily handled, 5 to 10 minutes. Use a fork to scrape insides of squash into spaghetti strands; transfer to a bowl.
Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and chard stems; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in chard leaves; cook and stir until just wilted, about 3 minutes. Season with chilli flakes, salt and black pepper.
Stir squash, tomatoes, parsley and thyme into the pan. Cook and stir until flavours combine, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top before serving.
