Introduction

Very yummy substitute for spaghetti. Add some chicken for protein! Or split it into smaller portions and have it as a side dish. Very yummy substitute for spaghetti. Add some chicken for protein! Or split it into smaller portions and have it as a side dish.
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 3-4lb Spaghetti Squash, halved and seeded
    2 cups thinly sliced cherry tomatoes
    3/4 cup shredded fresh spinach
    1/3 cup feta cheese
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 tbsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

Directions

1. Place the squash halves, open side down, in a 2-quart microwave-safe container. Add about 2/3 cup of water to the container.

2. Cover securely with plastic wrap. Use a sharp knife to cut four small steam vents in the plastic.

3. Microwave on high for 12-14 min (microwave times may vary, cook until squash is soft to touch). If your microwave doesn't naturally rotate the dish, then rotate it yourself halfway through. Let stand, covered, 3-5 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, combine all ingredients besides nuts into a large bowl.

5.While the squash is still warm, use a fork to scrape out the flesh; it will part into spaghetti-like strands.

6. Add squash to tomato mixture and toss gently to combine.

7. Garnish with pine nuts and enjoy!

I added some sliced chicken which I sauteed in some olive oil.

I made 5 very decent sized portions. Nutrition info is for 5 servings. However, you could easily divide it into 6 portions if you want it as a side dish.
