Baked Salmon over Spaghetti Sqaush

I bought a spaghetti squash a while ago at the grocery store and there is sat on the counter staring at me everyday.  Finally I decided to cook it so that it would stop looking at me everyday, asking why haven't you cooked me?  Okay,so the vegetable really didn't talk to me but we all have had this happen to us.  We go to the grocery store purchase many items and then all of a sudden you find something that you must have, you buy it and never do anything with it.  It goes bad and you have to throw it away.  We have all had this happen a time or two.  I was not going to let this happen with the squash.

This recipe is super simple, you just need to have time to bake the squash.

Baked Salmon over Spaghetti Squash
1 spaghetti squash
2 pieces of salmon (this came from Sea Bear)
a couple of tomatoes, seeded and diced
a small amount (maybe 8) green olives - mine came from the grocery store they were big green olives in a Italian spice
Feta cheese  (this cheese came from a local farm Spring Mill Farm, they have the best goat cheese!)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cut squash in half and dig out seeds.  Place squash onto a cookie sheet and place in preheated oven.  Bake for 45 minutes or until fork tender.
Place salmon onto a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place into the oven about 15 minutes prior to the squash getting done.
Remove squash from oven when done.  With a hot pad in your hand, hold the squash and with your other hand use a fork to scrape out the insides of the squash (it will look like spaghetti).  Place squash into a bowl, add tomatoes, olives and a little bit of olive oil (just a little).  Place squash onto plate and place cooked salmon over top.  Sprinkle with feta cheese and serve.
