1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Cut an "x" in the bottom of the heirloom tomatoes and remove the top stem portion.  Lower the tomato into the boiling water for about 1 minute and then transfer to refrigerator to cool completely

2. Peel the tomato once cooled and then remove the seeds and chop into 1/2 inch chunks

3. Mix together the tomato, feta cheese, oregano leaves and 2 tbsp olive oil and separate into 6 piles on a parchment lines sheet pan.  Set your oven to broil4. Saute the red onion julienne (thinly sliced) in a medium saute pan until soft but not mushy.  Set aside

4. In a large saute pan, add the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil and the thinly sliced garlic. Place over medium-high heat and cook garlic until it is toasted, about 3-4 minutes. 

5. Add the spaghetti squash to the pan and saute for another 2-3 minutes until squash is hot.  Do not agitate with a spoon or tongs as this will break up the squash, instead toss the pan.  Add white wine and reduce heat to low

6. Place the tomato-feta piles under the broiler until the feta browns slightly

7. Plating: separate the spaghetti squash among 6 bowls in piles in the middle of the bowl.  Using a spoon or spatula top the squash with the tomato-feta mixture.  Garnish liberally with the garlic crumb.  Enjoy!
