I don’t often make vegetarian entrees. But I really don’t feel that this dish needs any meat! The soft spaghetti squash, the garlicky and juicy cherry tomatoes, the creamy burrata, all finished with fresh oregano and a kick of black pepper – there just doesn’t seem any need for extra protein! Oh if you can’t find burrata then a good quality buffalo mozzarella would be a good alternative.
You can either cook spaghetti squash in the microwave or the oven. For this recipe, as the tomatoes also need to be roasted, I used the oven method.
Cut the spaghetti squash into slices.
Discard the seeds and place the rings onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.
Roast in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, add cherry tomatoes, garlic paste and more olive oil to a small baking tray. Stir well to mix. After the squash has cooked for 10 minutes, add the tomatoes to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Use a spoon to remove the spaghetti-like strands from the skin, and place them in a large bowl with the roasted tomatoes. Drain the burrata and tear into rough pieces. Add it to the bowl and gently toss everything to mix.
Transfer to two serving plates and garnish with fresh oregano leaves. Season generously with freshly ground black pepper.
