Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes
Serving Size: 1 boat
3 Small to Medium Spaghetti Squash
⅓ c Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
2 tbsp Grated Parmesan
1 tbsp Chopped Parsley
¾ c Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 tsp Olive Oil
½ Onion, finely chopped
3 cloves Garlic
14 oz Italian Chicken Sausage
14 oz Crushed tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp chopped basil
1 bay leaf
Preheat Oven to 400
Cut Spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and membrane. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake cut side down, 1 hour or until a fork can be pierced through fairly easily.
In a small bowl, combine ricotta, parmesan, and parsley.
In a large deep saute pan, heat oil and add onions and garlic. Saute on medium-low for 3-4 minutes until soft.
Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up into smaller pieces until brown and cooked through.
Once cooked, add the crushed tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Add the bay leaf and cover, reduce heat to low.
Simmer for 20-30 then add fresh basil at the end.
When spaghetti squash is cooked, let it cool enough to handle. Use a fork and run it lengthwise to make spaghetti strands in the flesh. Drain
Reserve the shells and once drained place an equal amount of spaghetti squash back into the shell on a baking sheet.
Top each with remaining sauce, 1 tbsp ricotta mixture, and 2 tbsp mozzarella cheese.
Bake in the oven for 20-30 or until everything is hot and cheese is melted.
Delicious, healthy and filling.
