Spaghetti Squash Primavera

Joanna Childs Mondragon 1

"This is my version of a recipe that came with my weekly produce basket, which contained several of the ingredients in the recipe. I made a few changes to suit my tastes, and the results were delicious! It makes a great vegetarian main course, or a nice accompaniment to a meat entree."

  1. Pierce the shell of the spaghetti squash with a fork and place in a microwave-safe dish; cook in microwave on High for 12 minutes. Set aside to cook until cool enough to handle. Slice in half lengthwise; remove the seeds. Use a fork to pull the flesh of the squash away from the shell and place into a large bowl; fluff with the fork to separate the strands as much as possible.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion in the hot oil until just tender, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and continue cooking and stirring another 3 minutes. Stir the zucchini and green bell pepper into the mixture; season with the Italian herb seasoning and black pepper. Pour the tomatoes into the skillet. Continue cooking just until the tomatoes are warmed, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the squash to the skillet and toss until evenly mixed. Sprinkle with the feta cheese and toss again to serve.

This is a super tasty, healthy, and quick dinner. It would have gone even faster if my squash had not been stubborn (probably took close to 20 mins total to microwave). For the tomatoes, I had o...

This is delicious! I have always just made spaghetti squash with marinara (boring!) so this was a nice change for me. I didn't have bell peppers or feta (which I imagine would be yummy and I'll ...

This recipe would have been perfect if the instructions on microwaving the squash had not been so inaccurate. I had no experience w/ squash, I realized when in my final stages of the recipe my m...

This was amazing! My wife and I loved it so much we decided to grow spaghetti squash in our garden next year so we can cook this all the time. It was very easy to make and tastes/smells deliciou...
