  • Pierce spaghetti squash 7 or 8 times with a fork. Place on a baking sheet; bake at 375° for 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Cool. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Scrape inside of squash with a fork to remove spaghetti-like strands. Keep warm.

  • While squash bakes, combine sun-dried tomatoes and 1 cup hot water in a bowl. Let stand 30 minutes or until soft. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Chop the tomatoes.

  • Steam broccoli, covered, for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse broccoli with cold water; drain and set aside.

  • Combine squash, tomatoes, broccoli, and remaining ingredients; toss gently.
