Spaghetti Squash with Tomato Sauce

Spaghetti squash is the perfect way to deliver flavor in a healthy way. It’s full of fiber, tastes great, and is very low in calories.

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped and drained over a colander
  • 4 tomatoes on-the-vine, chopped and drained over a colander
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, chopped and drained over a colander
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • Handful of oregano and basil
  • 1 teaspoon sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons roasted red peppers, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup sherry
  • Dash of Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the squash on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, scrape out the flesh with a fork into a bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and simmer. After they cook for about 1 hour and thicken quite a bit, add the tomato paste, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, and roasted red peppers, if using. Simmer for 15 more minutes, and stir in the sherry.

Portion over the squash, top with Parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
