RECIPE – Spaghetti Squash with Sausage Ragu

Spaghetti squash is a great option for those that are following a low carb lifestyle! It looks intimidating but it’s just as easy and much faster than boiling pasta.

Fast Cooking Spaghetti Squash (2 servings)

Make a few slits with a sharp knife in your squash. Do not cut it in half!
Place it on a plate or in a dish and microwave for approx. 10 minutes – flip squash at the 5 minute mark.
Squash will be soft and very hot so be careful when pulling it out of the microwave!

Sausage Ragu (2 servings)
1/4 yellow onion diced
1 small bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup black onions
1/2 fresh zucchini, chopped
1 cup pasta sauce of choice
2 Aidells Italian chicken sausages, chopped
Herbs and spices – I used salt, pepper, thyme, italian seasoning, garlic powder

Drizzle a little olive oil in a large pan and cook all ingredients together until veggies are soft.

I topped the squash with a tad more olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder before adding my sauce.

Sprinkle with a little cheese, if desired.

There you have it! A healthy, fast and nutritious dinner in less than 20 minutes that the entire family will love!
