Cheesy Spaghetti Squash With Sausage

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 45 mins

Spaghetti Squash is a delicious vegetable that tends to be a little on the "unknown" side. This recipe is one that my husband loves, because it has some meat in it, we eat this as a meal! Enjoy!


  1. Cut the squash in half and carefully remove the seeds.
  2. Be sure to cut around the edge so you don't cut into the squash itself.
  3. Turn halves upside down in a baking pan.
  4. Bake at 375-degrees for approx 45 minutes, or until the inside is soft.
  5. Let cool and carefully remove inside of squash with fork or spoon.
  6. It will look a lot like cooked spaghetti and come out in strands.
  7. Heat some olive oil in a skillet.
  8. Add the spaghetti squash strands, garlic and crumbled sausage.
  9. Cook on med until for approx 5 minutes.
  10. Add milk and cook until heated through and liquid is absorbed.
  11. Transfer to a warm bowl and toss with cheeses until mixed.
  12. Top with salt and pepper to taste.
  13. Enjoy!

Wow. I really liked this... a lot. I took the casing off six turkey italian sausages and browned/crumbled the meat, then added about 4 cups of shredded fresh spinach before adding the rest of the ingredients. I also added a dash of crushed red pepper. To make the entire thing faster to cook, I used my foolproof microwave method of cooking the squash: cut in half the long way, scoop out the seeds, add water to the bottom half, put the top half back on the bottom half, and cook for 10-15 mins. Voila, perfect squash w/o having to heat up the oven.<br/><br/>Thanks for sharing this recipe, I will make it often as part of my Primal nutritional lifestyle.

We just loved this recipe. My DH was scared at first, but changed his mind quickly. I did saute some bell-peppers and onion with the sausage. I also added more cheese. YUM
