Last updated 4 years ago

This simple, easy-to-make, heart-healthy dish is perfect as a satisfying Thanksgiving meal side, or as an entrée of its own. — Laurie Taunton, MS RD

Recipe: Spaghetti Squash with Spinach and Cannellini Beans

Ingredients:

1 spaghetti squash

3 tablespoons of  olive oil

3 cups of baby spinach

1 can of cannellini beans

3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

Parmesan cheese (optional)

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Rub the inside of each half with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the halves cut-side down on a parchment- lined baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes until tender.
  2. Heat oil on a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes or less. Sauté spinach for about 5 minutes. Add the cannellini beans until warmed through. Remove from heat.
  3. Remove squash from oven when it is cooked through and tender. Using a fork, pull the strands of squash from the peel so it resembles spaghetti. Place the squash into a serving bowl and add the spinach and cannellini bean mixture. Toss to combine and taste for seasoning. Garnish with cheese if desired.
