PEPPER, ONION & SAUSAGE SPAGHETTI SQUASH RECIPE

spaghetti squash with peppers, onion and sausage in a white bowl

When you’re looking for a simple, healthy spaghetti squash recipe, this Pepper, Onion and Sausage Spaghetti Squash is one of my favorites at the moment.

It’s full of flavor and super easy to put together!

I always seem to have my spaghetti squash with some kind of pasta sauce but not too much sauce where it’s drowning, just enough to give some added flavor.

For the sausage, Field Roast sausage is my first choice and Tofurkey is runner-up. If you’d rather, white beans would be great option too, I suggest, great northern, navy or chickpeas.

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete for me without red pepper flakes for heat.

The basil over top adds some color and extra flavors to this already delicious bowl of goodness. Enjoy!

When you’re looking for a simple, healthy spaghetti squash recipe with bell pepper, onion and sausage is one of my favorites!

  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 40 min
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 2
  • Category: Entree
  • Cuisine: Vegan

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cooked spaghetti squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 vegan sausages (such as Field Roast or Tofurkey), sliced
  • mineral salt & fresh cracked pepper
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • a few large basil leaves, julienned
  • 1 jar marinara sauce, optional

Instructions

Cook the spaghetti squash using this step by step guide: How To Cook Spaghetti Squash

In a medium size skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat, add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add sliced bell peppers and sausage, cook until bell peppers are softened and sausage is lightly browned around the edges.

While veggies are cooking, warm pasta sauce.

Serve spaghetti squash in serving bowl and top with a little sauce and 1/2 of the vegetable mixture. Add julienned basil over top and enjoy.

NOTES:

If you prefer you can rake and keep the spaghetti squash in its rind, acting as its own bowl. One less dish to wash!

Marinara sauce can be optional, this works just as well without it.

    I made the recipe but I added a green bell pepper and spinach as well! Top it off with some vegan shredded mozzarella cheese’ and no one knew the difference. Great go-to!
