  • Prepare quinoa as directed on package.

Stuffing for Squash

  • While the squash is cooking, prepare the filling.
  • Heat remaining olive oil in a large pan for 1 minute.
  • Add the onion and garlic and sautee for 5-7 minutes until golden brown.
  • Add the spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Mix cooked quinoa with spinach mixture and remove from heat.

Combining Squash & Stuffing

  • When the squash is cooked, let it cool for 5 minutes. (It will be very hot!)
  • Turn the squash around and with a fork, gently pull the squash flesh from the skin so that it starts to look like spaghetti strands.
  • Spoon spaghetti strands into the spinach/quinoa mixture and gently mix together.
  • Season mixture to taste (additional salt, pepper, garlic – if needed).
  • Place filling mixture back into the spaqhetti squash shells.
  • Top with bleu cheese.
  • Place back in oven and cook for 10 minutes.
  • ENJOY!
