WOW Recipe: Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash



Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes to an hour (45 minutes-1hour for the squash, 5 minutes for the vegetables)

Serves: 6


Ingredients:

1 - spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded

1 tablespoon - coconut or olive oil

1 - onion, chopped

2 cloves - garlic, chopped

1/2 cup - tomatoes, chopped

chili flakes (optional)

3/4 cup - almond cheese, grated

3 tablespoons - black olives, chopped

3 tablespoons - basil, Chopped

salt to taste


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet. Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on the prepared baking sheet, and bake 45 minutes to an hour in the preheated oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with only a little resistance. Remove squash from the oven, and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion in oil until tender. Add garlic, and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and cook only until tomatoes are warm. Add chili flakes (optional).

Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash, and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the sautéed vegetables, almond cheese, olives, basil and salt (taste).

Serve warm.
