Greek Spaghetti Squash with feta and tomatoes

We love spaghetti squash in our house!  If you’ve never made it before, it’s such a great veggie!  Once cooked, the squash turns into spaghetti-like strands.   Fun to eat, the kids love it and its just yummy!  We top ours so many different ways, but it is great even just with a touch of butter, salt & pepper!

You can cook your spaghetti squash in the oven but I usually do it in the microwave.  The key to getting it right in the microwave is to be sure not to add to much water.  I add 1/4 cup water for 1/2 a squash and 1/3 cup water if I am cooking both halves.  Once cooked (you should be able to pierce the skin easily with a fork), use a fork to scrape & separate the strands.
