Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash

Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash was inspired by one of my best friends, Katie. Whenever I visit, she always whips us up a healthy and delicious meal. This recipe is very similar to one she made for us last time I visited her. I have played with the ingredients but the combination of garlic, tomatoes, olives, spinach, and feta is my favorite. There is depth and delectable flavor in this dish!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium-sized spaghetti squash
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, sliced in half
  • 4 cups fresh spinach

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut squash in half length-wise. Scoop out the seeds. Place each half face down in a baking sheet. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until tender.

2. Sauté garlic in olive oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until fragrant. Add diced tomatoes and olives to pan. Cook for 5 minutes; stirring occasionally. Add spinach to pan and gently stir until spinach is slightly wilted.
 3. Add spaghetti squash to pan and coat with tomato mixture. 4. Just before serving, stir in feta cheese.
