Changes: Baked the spaghetti squash; replaced eggplant with zucchini


Ingredients

1 spaghetti squash, cut in half lengthwise and seeds scooped out

2 #zucchini, chopped

1 medium red onion, chopped

1 cup cherry #tomatoes, halved

1/2 jar of your favorite marinara sauce

1 can cannellini #beans, drained and rinsed

2 tbsp tahini

1 tsp crushed garlic

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp of each: smoked paprika, turmeric, cumin

Salt and pepper to taste

Basil, for garnish


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F.


Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the squash halves, cut side down, onto the sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the flesh pulls away in easy strands.


In a large sauté pan bring 2 tablespoons olive oil to a medium heat and add chopped onions. Sauté until soft and browned.


Add zucchini and sauté until softened.


Add crushed garlic and lower heat. Sauté a few minutes.

Add cherry tomatoes cut in half and sauté until they blister and release their juices.


Add all your seasonings and reduce heat to a low simmer.


Add spaghetti squash strands, marinara sauce, and beans to the sautéing vegetables and mix well.


After everything was cooked down together stir in tahini to give it a nice creamy taste.


Garnish with fresh basil.
