Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash, medium
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth, no salt added
  • 1/2 15 oz can artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained, and chopped
  • 1/2 15 oz can diced tomatoes, no salt added
  • 1 clove roasted garlic, sliced
  • 1/4 onion, large, minced
  • 1 oz black olives, sliced
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. To prepare spaghetti squash, preheat oven to 400°F, then slice squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Place squash on a roasting pan with a little water to cover the bottom, then cook for 30-45 minutes or until tender. 

 

2. Begin preparing the sauce by heating a pan on medium-high heat. Add onions stirring until golden brown. Add half of the broth to pan to loosen onion. 

 

3. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium, simmering for eight to 10 minutes. 

 

4. Remove spaghetti squash from the oven and use a fork to pull the squash from the peel. Place in bowl and top with tomato sauce and sliced roasted garlic.
