Warm Spaghetti Squash Salad

Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 30 to 40 minutes
Serves: 2 Difficulty: Easy

  • Ingredients
  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 fresh ripe tomatoes chopped 
  • 100gm crumbled feta cheese
  • small tin sliced black olives
  • large handful chopped fresh basil

Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 

Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Place spaghetti squash with cut sides down on the prepared baking sheet, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with only a little resistance. Remove squash from oven and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook and stir until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook until tomatoes are warmed through.

Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the vegetables, feta cheese, olives, and basil. Serve warm.
