When hunger strikes, whip up a batch of this hearty, all-vegetable pasta dish. It's loaded with appetite-suppressing fibre.

Ingredients

uncooked winter squash

3 pound(s), spaghetti variety (2 medium)

olive oil

2 tsp

uncooked onion(s)

1 small, chopped

garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

uncooked broccoli

½ cup(s), florets

yellow pepper(s)

¼ cup(s), chopped

sweet red pepper(s)

¼ cup(s), chopped

green pepper(s)

¼ strip(s), chopped

canned diced tomatoes

14½ oz, drained (reserve juice)

canned tomato paste

6 oz

water

¾ cup(s)

basil

2 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Halve squash lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Place squash, cut sides down, in a large baking dish and prick skin all over with a fork. Bake until tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil; sauté onion and garlic for 1 minute. Add broccoli and peppers; sauté until crisp-tender, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Stir in reserved tomato juice, tomato paste, and water; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in diced tomatoes and basil; simmer for 1 minute more.
  4. Using a fork, carefully rake stringy squash pulp from shell, separating it into spaghetti-like strands. Place 2 cups of squash on each of 4 plates and top each with about 1 1/2 cups of sauce.
