Spaghetti Squash Recipe

One of my favorite healthy meals is spaghetti squash!  It gives you the satisfaction and fullness of a huge pasta dinner but at about a fourth of the calories and virtually NO carbs! 

Spaghetti Squash

  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup fresh mozzarella
  • 3 tablespoons sliced black olives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on the prepared baking sheet, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with little resistance. Remove squash from oven and let cool.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic, and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook only until tomatoes are warm.
  4. Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash, and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the sauteed vegetables, mozzarella, olives, and basil. Enjoy guilt-free!
