Ingredients

  • 2 2

    2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 6 6

    6 clove minced garlic

  • 1 1

    1 large tomato

  • 4 4

    4 c baby spinach

  • 2 2

    2 c spaghetti squash

  • 2 2

    2 dash(es) salt and pepper

Directions

1. 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. 2. Remove from microwave and cut open lengthwise. 3. Using a fork, scrap out contents (it will be stringy) into a bowl and set aside. 4. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until just turning brown. 5. Add the tomato. Sprinkle with a bit of salt. 6. Top with the spinach leaves and cover for about 2 minutes. The spinach will cook and reduce down. 7. Uncover. Break up the spinach with a wooden spoon. It will start to clump together once cooked. 8. Add the spaghetti squash a little at a time and stir in. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 9. Add parsley as a nice garnish and serve!
