Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (about 8 inches long)
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves , chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Brush a large baking dish with vegetable oil.
  • Slice the spaghetti squash in half length-wise and scoop out the seeds (for the love of all things delicious, don't throw out the seeds! Clean them and roast them!). Place the spaghetti squash cut side down on the baking dish. Place the grape tomatoes on the baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes, or until the tomatoes start to wrinkle and burst. Carefully remove the tomatoes from the baking dish, and place the butternut squash back in the oven for another 20 minutes, or until the butternut squash can be pierced with a fork. Remove from heat and allow to cool until comfortable to the touch.
  • Use a fork to scoop out the spaghetti squash strands into a large bowl. Add the roasted tomatoes, basil leaves, feta cheese, and salt & pepper to taste. Mix well, and serve immediately.

Notes

- If you have any leftovers, the butternut squash might release juices as it sits in the fridge. Just drain off the next day before eating.
- To roast butternut squash seeds: clean the seeds and remove all the squash flesh.  Allow to dry for an hour or two. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast at 350F for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir once the seeds have cooled.
