summer veggie good stuff


1 spaghetti squash baked and cooled
2 cups of diced fresh garden tomatoes (seeds removed) ( I used black creole, yellow pear, san marzan, grape and cherry tomatoes)
2 small diced sweet peppers ( I used a yellow and a red for color contrast)
2 oz of feta cheese crumbled
1 onion
3 cloves of diced garlic
6 basil leaves
1 sprig of thyme
chopped fresh chives
salt and pepper

swirl some olive oil in the bottom a pan. add your onions and garlic and saute till soft. throw in your peppers and let them soften up too. Add your tomatoes while the pan is hot and they will soften with the remaining heat releasing some of their juices. then scrape out your spaghetti squash and gently add it to your softened veggies in the pan. add your feta and fresh herbs and salt and pepper and stir it very gently. Let it sit on warm for about 10 min. to let the flavors meld together and get happy.
 I hope you enjoy it!!
