Pin It

First off, I'm gonna get it out there. This did not photograph well.

I even considered not posting it, for just that reason. 
But, I couldn't do that to you. It was that good.

I've been on a bit of a artichoke kick lately, but I don't apologize. 
They've just been hitting the spot,,, itching the itch,,,, you get my drift.

This is a great go-to dish.
So easy, healthy and just down right delish.

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Artichokes, Basil Pesto and Cherry Tomatoes

1 Spaghetti Squash, roasted
2 tbsp olive oil, plus more for roasting
Salt and Pepper
1/2 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 cup chicken stock (or vegetable)
1/4 cup white wine
4 oz artichoke hearts, chopped
1/4 cup basil pesto
1 cup sweet cherry tomatoes, halved
Parmesan Cheese
Fresh Parsley

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut spaghetti squash in half, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper. Roast on a baking sheet, cut side down, for 40-50 minutes or until squash is tender. Let cool, then using a fork, scrape out squash. It will come out in shredded pieces resembling spaghetti.

Add 2 tbsp of olive oil into a large heated skillet. Add onions and sauté 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and continue to sauté another couple minutes. Add white wine and chicken broth. Simmer 3-5 minutes. Stir in basil pesto; add cherry tomatoes and simmer 2 minutes. Add spaghetti squash, parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. You can also add additional chicken broth if needed/desired.

Basil Pesto

2/3 cup basil leaves
2 cloves garlic
1/3 cup nuts (I used almonds and pecans)
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and Pepper
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup olive oil

Put first six ingredients into a food processor and pulse into a paste. Add cheese and pulse to blend. With machine running, pour in olive oil and mix to incorporate.
