Italian Sausage Spaghetti Squash

Italian Sausage Spaghetti Squash


  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 24 oz favorite marinara
  • 4 basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parmesan for sprinkling


  • To cook the spaghetti squash, take a large, sharp knife and halve the squash lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds and discard. Brush the inside of the squash with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake flesh side up on a baking sheet at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 – 60 minutes, until the flesh is tender.
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the sausage and cook through, crumbling as you cook.
  • Pour the marinara in and mix. Bring to a boil and then down to a simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Once the squash is cool, scrape into a baking dish and spread evenly. Spread the sausage and marinara on top. Sprinkle with fresh parmesan.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes in an oven heated at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once done, sprinkle with freshly chopped basil leaves. Serve warm.
