Greek Spaghetti SquashIf you are looking for a delicious alternative to pasta, give spaghetti squash a try.  It’s a great option when you are counting calories and/or carbs.  This recipe includes delicious Greek flavors including feta cheese, red onion, tomatoes and spinach.  My kids gobbled this up, much to my surprise.  I’m a firm believer in offering new foods, including fruits and vegetables to my children.  They are open to trying new things and are often pleasantly surprised.  This dish was no exception, it’s great to serve as a sidedish or in our case, as a main course along with a nice loaf of crusty bread and a salad.

Greek Spaghetti SquashIngredients:

  • One whole spaghetti squash, cut and deseeded
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 whole tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 red onion

Greek Spaghetti SquashDirections:

  1. Cut spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise and removed seeds.  Rub each side with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. While baking, on stovetop, sauté onions, tomatoes and lastly spinach and set aside.
  4. Spray aluminum pan lightly with cooking spray and place flesh side down and roast for 30-40 minutes or until cooked.
