Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the squash, cut side up, on a damp paper towel in a microwavable dish. Microwave on high until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Using a fork, scrape the strands of squash into a microwavable bowl and toss with the butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the sausage with the bread crumbs and form into 1-inch meatballs.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat.
  6. Add the meatballs and cook, stirring, until browned, about 6 minutes.
  7. Cover and cook over low heat until cooked through, about 3 minutes more.
  8. Reheat the shredded squash in the microwave and top with the meatballs, cheese and basil.

This was good! I used asiago cheese chicken sausages and therefore did not use the parmesan cheese.I used dried basil and no butter, just olive oil.After the meatballs were cooked, I removed, and tossed the spaghetti squash in the same pan. I passed hot tomato sauce that had a little splenda in it if anyone wanted the sauce.

I recently made this for dinner, I love RR's recipes! This was very very good, though I added a bit of milk to the meatball mixture in order to moisten them up a bit.
