Number of Servings: 4


    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


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.

    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
