Looking for healthy, flavorful, weeknight meal? The flavors in this recipe are so good!  To add a bit of protein, you can serve it with chicken, but it would be de-lish on its own as well.

What you need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 large tomato
  • 4 c baby spinach
  • 2 c spaghetti squash
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


• To cook spaghetti squash quickly, make several holes in the squash using a fork. Then pop it in the microwave for about 10-12 minutes (about 4-5 minutes a pound).

• Allow to cool for several minutes in microwave.

• Remove from microwave and cut open lengthwise.

• Using a fork, scrape out contents (it will be stringy) into a bowl and set aside.

• In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until just turning brown.

• Add the tomato. Sprinkle with a bit of salt.

• Top with the spinach leaves and cover for about 2 minutes. The spinach will cook and reduce down.

•  Uncover. Break up the spinach with a wooden spoon. It will start to clump together once cooked.

•  Add the spaghetti squash a little at a time and stir in. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

•  Add parsley as a nice garnish and serve!
