  • 2 pouches (2.6 oz.) StarKist E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna with Tomato Basil
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash, washed
  • 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • ½ cup diced yellow onion
  • ½ tsp. dried basil
  • ¼ cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Place squash in microwave for 1 minute on full power. Once done allow to sit in microwave for 1 minute. (This softens the squash just enough to make it easy to cut)
  • Cut squash in half and scrape out seeds. Place cut side down in a rimmed baking sheet or 9 x 13 pan with ¼ to ½ cup water. Bake in oven for 40 minutes or until fork tender
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium sauté pan. Add onion and garlic and sauté until just tender.
  • Remove squash from oven and cool for a minute. Then scape the pasta like strands into the sauté pan with the onion and garlic. Add tuna, basil and 2 Tbsp. mozzarella cheese and mix together.
  • Place tuna and squash mixture back in the squash halves and top with 1 Tbsp. of cheese over each half and bake for another 2 – 3 minutes to melt the cheese.
