Spaghetti squash with spinach

Today is day 2 of lunch without husband and boy am I actually having fun cooking for myself. When I have to just cook for myself it’s a total experiment scene in my kitchen. I am a spaghetti squash fan and I was so enthusiastic about making it today. It tastes just like a nice pasta meal minus the loads of calories and unwanted carbs. I added chicken to my dish to pump the protein and make it a complete meal. The counts do include the chicken, but I must suggest you to give this a try and tell how you like it.

1 cup cooked spaghetti squash
2 oz canned crushed tomatoes
1 oz chopped onions
1 clove garlic chopped
1 cup fresh spinach
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp EVOO

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan over medium heat, add the onion and garlic cook till soft and smells great add the tomatoes and add the seasoning, salt and pepper. When the tomatoes are cooked a lil water and then the spinach. when the spinach wilts add the spaghetti squash. Cook for another 2- 3 minutes and done.

Made me 2 servings
