Ingredients

  • 2 medium Spaghetti Squash
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground

Filling

  • 8 ounce italian sausage, ground
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 small bell pepper, red
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 cup Marinara Sauce, Store-bought
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounce mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut both spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds.  Oil the halves and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place on a cookie sheet and bake for about 30 minutes or until soft.
  • While the squash bakes, prepare the filling.  Place the sausage in a skillet over medium heat.  Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat.  Once cooked, remove from pan.
  • Dice the onion and peppers and add to the pan.  Saute until the veggies are soft.
  • Mince garlic and add to the pan with veggies, cook for 1 minute. Add the meat, marinara and salt.  Stir well and remove from the heat.
  • When the squash is done, use a fork to fluff up the squash. It will flake apart and look like spaghetti! Top with the filling; divide among the squash halves and top with shredded cheese.
  • Broil in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve warm.
