Stuffed Spaghetti Squash with Tomatoes, Olives, Tuna and String Cheese
- 2 medium spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise
- 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup pimento-stuffed green olives, chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Salt and ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons green olive brine (from the olive jar)
- 2 (6-ounce) cans chunk white tuna in water, drained
- String cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
Arrange the spaghetti squash halves in the bottom of a slow cooker.
In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. Spoon the mixture over the spaghetti squash. Pour the olive brine in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
When ready to serve, using a fork, "loosen" the squash slightly, creating spaghetti-like strands. Spoon the tomato sauce over the squash, top each piece with some tuna, string cheese, and basil and serve.
