Ingredients

For the Lemon Pesto

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit

Line one sheet tray with parchment paper.

Add chickpeas that have been drained, rinsed, and patted dry. Drizzle chickpeas with olive oil, spices, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until crispy, shaking the tray once halfway through.

For the Spaghetti Squash

Use a fork to stab holes all around the squash. Microwave for about 15 minutes until fork tender. When the squash is done, cut in half and let cool. Scoop out the seeds. Then, using two forks, shred the squash flesh into “spaghetti”.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil with the tomatoes in a medium sized pot over medium heat on the stove top. Cook until the tomatoes have begun to burst, about 10 minutes. Add the canned artichoke halves that have been cut into quarters. Add the minced garlic and spinach and cook for 1 minute. Add the “spaghetti” shreds. Stir to combine, season with salt and pepper. Add in feta or cheese of choice. Remove from heat and stir in enough lemon basil sauce to coat.

For the Sauce

In a food processor, combine all the ingredients for the pesto sauce and pulse until smooth. Taste for seasoning and adjust salt/pepper. If the mixture is too thick you can add more oil. Enjoy!
