Are you a big pasta fan? Spaghetti squash can be a healthier, low carb alternative (and it tastes just as great!)
For something new, try out this spaghetti squash caprese recipe by the blog, Fashionable Foods.
1 Medium-Sized Spaghetti Squash, cut in half and seeds removed
Salt & Pepper
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Large Garlic Cloves, finely minced
1 Pint Grape Tomatoes, cut in half
1 Ball Fresh Mozzarella, diced
Fresh Basil, thinly sliced
1.Preheat the oven to 375º.
2. Drizzle each half of spaghetti squash lightly with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place the halves cut side down in a baking dish. Bake the spaghetti squash for 35-40 minutes, or until tender. To check for doneness, slide a pairing knife into the squash and if it glides in easily, it’s ready. If there is resistance, it needs more time.
3. Let the spaghetti squash cool until you can handle it. Shred the squash into “spaghetti” with a fork. Set aside.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and in the olive oil. Sauté the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds, and then add in the tomatoes. Cook the tomatoes until they begin to leave off some of their juices, about 2-3 minutes. Toss in the spaghetti squash and coat evenly in the sauce.
5. Turn the heat off and add in the fresh mozzarella. Stir gently until the mozzarella begins to melt. Top with fresh basil and taste for seasoning, if needed, add more salt and pepper. Serve!
