Roasted Tomatoes with Spaghetti Squash
Ingredients
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic , finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp fresh herbs (recommended: thyme, basil)
  • 2 shallots , finely chopped
  • 1 whole spaghetti squash , cut in half, seeds scooped out
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Place the squash on a cookie sheet so the squash sits like a bowl on the sheet. Drizzle olive oil on the inside of the squash and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast the spaghetti squash in the oven for at least one hour until completely cooked. The squash will shred into a spaghetti like texture with a fork when cooked.
  4. While the squash is cooking, place the cherry tomatoes in a glass baking dish. Drizzle generously with a minimum of 3 tbsp of olive oil. Sprinkle with herbs, garlic, shallots and salt and pepper. Gently stir to distribute the oil and other ingredients.
  5. Bake in the oven along side the squash if you wish, for about 30 minutes, until the tomatoes start to burst. Pull from oven and add more fresh herbs if you wish.
  6. Once the squash is cooked, flake the squash with a fork to create the spaghetti texture. Squash can be transferred to a plate then topped with roasted tomatoes or served directly from the squash shell.
  7. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired.
