Oh, my. This was such a mouthwatering, meatless main dish. Roasted Italian Tomatoes with Spaghetti Squash was perfectly seasoned with lots of different herbs like oregano, basil, thyme and rosemary. Adding onions, leeks and garlic made it really savory and delicious. If you’re looking for a healthy, low calorie meal, this one does the trick.

This irresistible main dish is vegan and gluten free. On top of that it’s one of those truly satisfying dinners that you can enjoy even as leftovers. I made it with a Crunchy Marinated Vegetable Salad so we really got our dose of veggies for that meal. Roasting the tomatoes and veggies brings out so much additional flavor. Adding a little olive oil provides just a little extra deliciousness.

Many of you know I love roasting vegetables. I’ve made several recipes with roasted tomatoes including soups. Roasting the tomatoes just makes this dish spectacular in my opinion. We loved this tasty and healthy entree. If you enjoy tomatoes this recipe is wonderful. If you’re trying to lower your caloric intake after weeks of holiday indulgence, this entree should do it. Enjoy!
