Spicy Sausage & Spaghetti Squash

by admin


  • 1/2 spaghetti squash
  • 2 handfuls fresh basil
  • 1 bag of fresh spinach
  • 3-4 Mango Habanero Sausage (nitrate & gluten-free)
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 4 green onions
  • Mrs. Dash extra spicy (to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp. oregano

Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, take the seeds out, and bake rind side down in 1 cup of water for 45 minutes at 375 degrees.

When it’s done, gently scrape a fork around the edge of the spaghetti squash to shred the pulp into strands.

Cut the sausage into bite size pieces.

Saute the garlic in oil of your choice for 3-5 minutes.

Add in the spaghetti squash, green onions, seasoning, fresh basil and spinach, and sausage, mixing well.

Turn to simmer and cover for 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
