Spaghetti Squash With Pesto-Olive Sauce for One

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by tamarinda

This makes a nice use for leftover spaghetti squash. Adapted from recipe posted by Pat Gaelen to the Low Carb Vegetarian listserv. Heating can be done on the stove-top, in a toaster oven, or in the microwave (as the original recipe suggested). For a single-serving, use a dish which can go from oven to table. Preparation time assumes the ingredients are all ready from prior prep work or bought already prepared. Cook time is time to heat on the stove.

I used this recipe more as an inspiration than a set of rules. I made it with two medium spaghetti squashes, and multiplied the other ingredients accordingly. yum
