Yield: Approximately 12 servings 

1 medium spaghetti squash
1 medium bunch Swiss chard (or green of choice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red onion, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
¼ cup shaved Parmesan cheese

1. Roast the spaghetti squash: preheat oven to 375 F. With a small, sharp knife, prick holes all over the squash. Place on a baking sheet or in a shallow roasting pan and roast until tender, about 1 to 1.5 hours, turning half way through.
2. While the squash is roasting, sauté the greens, onion, and garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil until fragrant.
3. Remove the squash from the oven and allow to cool. Once it is cool enough, slice in half lengthwise and remove the stringy flesh with a fork.
4. Toss the greens, garlic, and onion with the flesh of the spaghetti squash. Dress with remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper, and shaved parmesan cheese. Serve warm.
