    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 300g chopped tomatoes
    • 125g feta, crumbled
    • 2 tablespoons sliced black olives
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on the prepared baking tray, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with only a little resistance. Remove squash from oven, and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.
    3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry onion in oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and fry further 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook only until tomatoes are warmed through.
    4. Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash, and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the vegetables, feta, olives, and basil. Serve warm.

    This is agreat dish! Too inprove the spaghetti squash's tenderness, just put it in a baking dish close to it's size and add 1 1/2 cups of water for the same baking time and it will be wonderfully soft and perfect.  -  17 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    My boyfriend and I had never had spaghetti squash, but as he said, I would give it a 10 star if I could. I am not a fan of squash at all.... but this was so good... All the right blends of veggies. I didnt have fresh basil, used less of the dry basil, also sauted veggies in olive oil , and depending on the size of squash might take longer then 30 mins, i just did the knife test, and knew it needed more time, so added 15 more minutes on.Had a medium size one and well there wasnt any left overs. I had a bowl and bf had the rest, he loved it.. So hats off to the chef who made this a keeper in our house. I also added grated parmesan cheese on top after it was served, yummy we love cheese and a loaf of fresh bread to go with it is a meal in it self. This would go great as a side dish for the parmesan tilapia fish , that I also found on here. That too was good. I love to cook and have found so many good recipes on here, this is at the top.... go figure and I thought I hated squash.  -  23 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I wanted to add a P.S. to my rating. The next day I added some beaten egg and bread crumbs to the leftovers to add substance. I formed the squash into round patties and breaded them with bread crumbs. I then browned them in Canola oil and they were sooooo delicious. My boyfriend loves this recipe and he loved what I did with the leftovers too.  -  22 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
