Game Day Goodie: Spaghetti Squash
Try this spaghetti squash recipe for an easy, fun, and low calorie option. It calls for garlic, tomatoes, black olives, basil, and feta cheese for a fun Greek flair. One serving has 4 grams of protein, so if this is your main entrée try adding grilled chicken.
What you will need
1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1.5 cups chopped tomatoes
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 tbsp. black olives, sliced
2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place spaghetti squash, cut sides down, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 30 minutes, until a sharp knife can be inserted with little resistance. Remove from oven and let cool.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute garlic in hot oil for 1-2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook until warmed through.
Using a large spoon, scoop the stringy pulp from the squash. Add to skillet and toss with vegetables, feta cheese, olives, and basil. Serve warm.
