Nonstick aluminum foil
1 (14.5-oz) can diced tomatoes, drained

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped and divided
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 lemon, for juice
1 (15-oz) package frozen (or fresh) prediced butternut squash

1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1 cup baby spinach
4 white fish fillets (such as cobia, snapper, tilapia), about 20 oz

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with foil. Drain tomatoes and chickpeas; chop cilantro and garlic. Squeeze lemon for juice (2 tablespoons). Place in large bowl: tomatoes, chickpeas, squash, stock, couscous, oil, garlic, pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper, if using. Toss to coat.

Spread vegetable mixture in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons cilantro, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon red pepper, if using. Set aside.
Stir spinach into vegetable mixture. Place fish over vegetable mixture; season fish with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake 12–15 minutes until fish is opaque and flakes easily. Serve fish over vegetables. Drizzle with yogurt sauce, and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro.

Always check fish for bones and cook to an internal temperature of 145°F.
