Spaghetti Squash wiht Tomatoes and Herbs

This is really good. It's a recipe I found online a couple years ago when I was first on my diet. Even my daughter LOVED it, even though she was not so sure about squash being like spaghetti. I think the fact of how it shreds to resemble spaghetti pasta blew her mind...

Spaghetti Squash wiht Tomatoes and Herbs

Spaghetti squash, cooked
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 28-ounce can tomatoes, drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or frozen basil
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
2-3 tablespoons grated parmesan or Romano cheese

Sauté the garlic in the oil until it's softened but not burned. Chop the tomatoes & add them along with the herbs to the garlic and simmer for ten to fifteen minutes. Ladle this on the squash and top with freshly grated parmesan for a light dinner.
