I’m always looking for new ways to make veggies and this has become one of our staples when we are craving pasta or italian food.
Spaghetti Squash with Fire Roasted Tomatoes
It’s really simple with only 3 ingredients and TONS of flavor! All you need is a spaghetti squash, a can of fire roasted tomatoes and garlic powder or fresh garlic.
Here is the recipe…
Take spaghetti squash and pierce with holes (about 5-6 all over) to let steam escape while cooking. Cook in microwave for 8 min.
Take squash out (be VERY careful…it will be extremely hot!) and let cool for about 10 min.
After it has cooled, cut squash, length wise, and scoop out all seeds from the middle.
Next, place one of the squash halves on a plate, “meat side” down and add 2 tbsp of water to the plate. Wrap with plastic wrap and cook in the microwave for 6-8 min. This will all depend on how big your squash is. Do this for both halves. Again, be careful taking out.
Once cooked, pour about 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and heat up. Scrape out all of the spaghetti squash into the pan with a fork. The squash, when out of the shell, will look like cooked spaghetti.
Next pour your fire roasted tomatoes on top (juice and all) and add garlic powder or fresh garlic. How much garlic is completely up to you. I love garlic, so I put a ton on.
Stir and cook/warm up for about 5 min making sure all the ingredients are combined.
