Ingredients
  

  • 5 cups spaghetti squash (1 1/2 of small ones)
  • 6 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 4 cups grape tomatoes
  • 10 1/2 oz goat cheese , 1 log from Costco
  • 2 tbsp basil dry
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup olives Kalamata kind, pitted and marinated

Instructions
 

  • Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Prep the squash.
    Rinse squash, dry, and slice lengthwise to open. Scoop out the seeds, poke with a sharp fork or knife on the outer part of the squash. Using 2 tablespoons of olive oil, rub inside to coat with oil really well. Place on the baking sheet and bake on the middle rack for 40 minutes till soft.
  • Once squash is baked, let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Using a heat-protecting mitten and fork scoop out the insides.
  • Prep the sauce. While squash is baking. Rinse tomatoes, place in the oven-safe baking sheet, place goat cheese log in the middle. Add 4 tablespoons of olive oil, sprinkle with basil and salt. Bake for 30 minutes on the second to the top shelf in the oven.
  • Finish the sauce. Once tomatoes are done roasting, cool for 5 monutes.
  • Then carefully and slowly using a large fork, press tomatoes to release the juice. Mix with melted goat cheese.
  • Combine. Place the spaghetti squash strands to the dish with tomatoes. Mix well, add olives and serve.

Notes

  • If you like spaghetti squash to be more on the soft side without any crunch, add a little bit of water to the baking dish before starting to bake the squash. 
  • If you would like to serve with animal-based protein, the rotisserie chicken or Italian sausage would make a perfect combination. 
  • Feel free to replace dry basil with fresh or use thyme.
