Spaghetti Squash with Onions, Tomatoes, and Olives

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash, about 3 lbs (1.4 kg)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) chicken broth
  • 2 cups (280 g) whole cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) oil-packed green and black olives, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup (90 g) feta cheese, diced
  • 1/4 cup (10 g) basil, finely chopped

Preparation

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a work surface, cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Season with salt and pepper. Place on the sheet, cut side down, and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the squash is tender. Let cool.
  3. Shred the flesh with a fork.
  4. In a bowl, combine the squash with 2 tbsp (30 ml) of the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.
  5. Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown the onions in the remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the broth, tomatoes and olives. Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the tomatoes have slightly broken down. Remove from the heat. Add the cheese. Adjust the seasoning. Serve on a bed of spaghetti squash and sprinkle with the basil.
