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!Print

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 ½ of the vegetable mixture. Add julienned basil over top and enjoy.
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.
