Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Crush garlic and mince. Roughly chop basil. Set ingredients aside in bowls.

In a pan or skillet over medium high heat add olive oil, when the oil starts to look shimmery add cherry tomatoes, then garlic (so it doesn’t burn) . Saute  2-3 minutes allowing flavors to infuse and aromas to be released. Add basil and turn off heat. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper. 

Using a fork scrape out the spaghetti squash onto a serving dish and. Place the sauteed ingredients on top of the squash. Add olives (optional).
