Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 ½ cups chopped tomatoes

  • ¾ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 3 tablespoons sliced black olives

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

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

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

  4. Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash and place in a medium bowl. Toss with cooked onion-tomato mixture, feta cheese, olives, and basil. Serve warm.
