    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    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!

      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
