Ingredients

The Tomatoes:

The Dressing:

The Spaghetti Squash:

  • 1 3 pound spaghetti squash
  • 2 ounces fresh mozzarella diced
  • 5 fresh basil leaves thinly sliced

Instructions

The Tomatoes:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  • Place the tomatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Drizzle the tomatoes with the olive oil, and sprinkle them with garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Roast until the tomatoes are slightly shriveled and soft, 15 to 20 minutes. Roughly chop the tomatoes and set aside.

The Dressing:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, agave (or honey) and salt.

The Spaghetti Squash:

  • Using a large, sharp knife, pierce a spaghetti squash in several places.
  • Place the spaghetti squash in a glass baking dish and cook in the microwave on high for about 15 minutes, turning the squash halfway through cooking.
  • Before handling, let the squash stand for 10 minutes. Cut it in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and fibers. Using a fork, twist out strands of the spaghetti squash flesh and place in a large bowl. Let stand at room temperature.
  • Add the roasted tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and dressing to spaghetti squash. Toss gently to combine. Serve.
