Pesto Spaghetti Squash
So yumz! The recipe for this pasta dish..er..veggiiiee dish- is from SkinnyTaste.com. Go for thirds. Feel no guilt.
You can make it as quick & easy as you want- microwave it and toss spaghetti sauce over top if you are really in a bind (save those hours for the hair & makeup and 10 outfit changes).
- 1 spaghetti squash
- Basil leaves
- 1 small clove garlic
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Packet of pesto sauce mix
- Cherry tomatoes
- Parmesan cheese to sprinkle over top
Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Cover and microwave for 8-9 minutes (I put mine in the oven at 425 when the microwave wasn’t coming through for me).
Scoop out the spaghetti-like insides.
Mix the pesto packet with olive oil and water and boil; remove from heat
Saute the garlic
Pour the sauce into the skillet with the garlic; add the squash strands and mix, adding salt and pepper; toss the cherry tomatoes, basil and parmesan cheese over top.
