If you aren’t on the Whole30 program, you may enjoy using our homemade Pesto in this recipe.
- 1 medium to large spaghetti squash
- Extra virgin olive oil, optional
- 3 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
- ¼ cup Whole 30 Pesto
- Poke a few holes in the skin of the uncut spaghetti squash with a fork. Place entire uncut squash in the microwave and microwave for 8-10 minutes on high to get skin pliable enough to cut.
- Use a dish towel to remove the squash to your cutting board and cut from end to end in half.
- Remove and discard seeds.
- Place squash cut side down on a plate or platter and microwave on high for about 15 minutes, using five minute intervals. Once the squash is soft, invert and using a fork, pull and scrape the meat from the squash, finishing with a spoon to remove all flesh from shell. Discard the outer shell.
- Toss with tomatoes and pesto and serve. (Note: If your pesto is too thick, add some additional olive oil to loosen it.)
- Optional: Drizzle with olive oil before serving if desired.
