Roasted Italian Tomatoes with Spaghetti Squash
Gluten Free Living – 2022
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!
Roasted Italian Tomatoes with Spaghetti Squash was outstanding.
If you’ve never eaten leeks before, you don’t know what you’re missing.
This meatless main dish is wonderful served as leftovers too.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Cut tomatoes into fourths and toss into a large mixing bowl.
Add leeks, onions, garlic, salt and pepper.
Add olive oil.
Stir to combine.
Spread tomato mixture onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
Add minced herbs.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, bake spaghetti squash at 400 degrees for one hour or until softened. (I usually pierce the outside of the squash so it doesn’t explode while baking!)
Cut squash in half.
Remove seeds and pulp and discard.
Remove strands of spaghetti squash with a fork.
Remove squash from shell until totally cleaned out.
To serve: Spread spaghetti squash on a platter. Spread roasted tomatoes over top.
This mouthwatering recipe will knock your socks off!
One of the really nice things about this recipe is how low in calories it is. Especially after a month or so of holiday indulgence, this is a way to get back on track!
