Greek Spaghetti Squash Bake

Yet again – my love affair with spaghetti squash has emerged from my brain and spiralled itself with the flaves of Greece. Ermagawd. I know how much I have rambled about the epic-ness of this amazing winter squash – but I just can’t believe how much abuse it will take.
I’ve fried it, baked it, blended it, souped it, sauced it – about everything but named one and taken it on a date. The possibilities are endless. Crucial amounts of Vitamin A, combined with Vitamin C, calcium, and phytonutrients are just a few of the important genes in this lovely yellow squash. Not that I have ever looked twice at calorie counting – but a fun fact regarding spaghetti squash; they hold roughly 80 calories in an entire half. Mug shot that next to a plate of rib cage sticking white pasta and I think we know whom the champion is. Nothing beats throwing everything into one dish and popping it in the oven.  It’s genius. Give this a try and let me know what your thoughts are. The reigning champ of casseroles – I give you:

  1. Cut and seed your squash and bake open face up in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 min. Cool and then scrape out into a bowl and set aside. (i like to cook my squashes way ahead of time, or even the night before).Cook your chicken with olive oil, garlic, spices and apple cider vinegar until about 90%.
  2. Dice your tomato's, olives, red onion, zucchini and mix in a bowl with the chick peas. Drizzle a touch more of apple cider in the bowl and mix.
  3. Layer half the spaghetti squash into a glass baking dish (pre heat oven to 375). 5. Layer some of the vegetables, then more squash and the rest of the veggies. Top with feta and squeeze the lemon juice on top.
  4. Bake for approx 30-40 minutes.
  1. Tip: Pre Cook your Spaghetti Squash the night before. You will thank me later.
