Mushroom Primavera with Spaghetti Squash

Submitted by: SARASHLEYP


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 1/2 tablespoons sliced Kalamata olives
    3/4 cup crumbled, fat-free feta cheese
    1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
    2 teaspoons minced garlic
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 pound white button mushrooms, sliced
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 spaghetti squash (about 3 pounds)
    1/2 cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish

Directions

With the tip of a knife, pierce squash in about 5 places. Place on paper towel in microwave and cook on high for 10 minutes, or until squash has softened. When cool enough to handle, cut squash lengthwise and remove seeds with a spoon. Remove the spaghetti-like strands of squash with a fork, set aside and cover to keep warm (or reheat in microwave at serving time).

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a single layer of mushrooms and cook, without stirring, for about 5 minutes or until mushrooms become red-brown on one side. Stir in onion and garlic and cook for 3 more minutes, until onions are softened. Add tomatoes, cheese and olives and cook about 3 minutes longer, until mixture is hot and bubbling. Remove pan from heat and stir in basil. Divide squash among 4 shallow serving bowls. Spoon sauce over spaghetti squash and garnish with additional freshly chopped basil. Serve immediately.

  • Incredible!

    I used regular black olives and canned, chopped tomatoes, with fresh mushroom slices and added 3 Laughing Cow cheese wedges for a creamier sauce. It only increased the calories 16 per serving. I hadn't cooked spaghetti squash in years but now I'll serve it often. Thanks for expanding my horizons! - 5/30/09

  • Husband LOVED it! I am withholding my comment until I re-make the recipe using fresh basil....I am thinking it's going to be an entirely different dish. I am a fresh herb lover. - 3/19/12

  • Oh my gosh! This recipe is amazing. Based on other comments I added the Laughing Cow cheese and deleted the olives. Definitely a recipe for the cookbook. - 2/29/12

  • My husband and I loved this! One of my three kids actually ate it so that is saying something. I cooked the squash in the crockpot on low all day (8hours), came home & it was ready. Had my ingred's pre-chopped so it was easy breezy to make after a long day. This is a keeper! Thanks Sarashleyp! - 11/9/11

  • This was my first time ever even seeing spaghetti squash. That seems bizarre considering my adventurous taste. It was absolutely delicious. I had to add a dash of salt to perk up the flavors, but it is up there on my list of favorite meals :) - 9/30/10

  • This recipe is soooooo good! I omitted the olives and took the advice of adding two Laughing Cow cheese wedges for more creaminess. The calories just seem too good to be true with this dish. Tasty and filling, I'm not so sure... - 3/10/10

  • Holy Moly, this is heaven! No olives for me, I just don't like them. This was amazing! And the serving size is enough to actually fill you up for so few calories. I hope you have more recipes out there... - 1/21/10
