    1 spaghetti squash (about 3 1/4 pounds)
    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 cup minced fresh onion
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    2 bay leaves
    Dash of crushed red pepper
    3 garlic cloves, minced and divided
    1 cup dry red wine
    1/2 cup water
    1/3 cup coarsely chopped pitted kalamata olives
    1 tablespoon capers
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, undrained
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 375°.
Pierce squash with a fork. Place squash on a baking sheet; bake at 375° for 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Cool. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Scrape inside of squash with a fork to remove spaghetti-like strands to measure 6 cups. Keep warm.

While squash is baking, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, oregano, thyme, bay leaves, and red pepper; sauté 5 minutes. Add 2 minced garlic cloves, wine, and the next 6 ingredients (wine through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until thick (about 30 minutes). Discard bay leaves. Serve sauce over squash.

Combine 1 minced garlic clove, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Sprinkle over each serving.

  • This is absolutely delish - I served it with a chicken breast that was tossed in parm cheese and broiled. A new fall favorite with spaghetti squash... - 10/28/10

  • We added some meatless ground turkey to this, and put it over pasta. It was very filling and quite tasty--don't think it would be quite so filling w/o the protein and pasta, though. - 3/19/08

  • This was phenomenol! And so easy to do! The sauce would be wonderful over pasta too. (or maybe even polenta -- yum!) - 2/13/08
