This is one of my favorite meals! Not only is it low-fat, low-calorie, and low-carb, it’s colorful, tasty, and made with all real, unprocessed foods. It’s sure to become one of your family’s favorite meals too! Add a side salad with fresh greens and you’ve got a complete meal.
1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 tablespoons sliced black olives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
2. Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until a sharp knife can be inserted with little resistance. Remove squash from oven and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.
3. While squash is cooling, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic and sautee for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and cook until tomatoes are warm.
4. Use a fork to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash (will resemble spaghetti noodles) and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the sauteed vegetables, feta cheese, olives and basil. Serve warm.
