On Tuesday night, after 2 full weeks of eating out, I decided we need a delicious (and healthy) home-cooked meal. After some convincing Spencer let me make some spaghetti squash. I posted a picture on Instagram and you guys requested the recipe, so here it is!
You will need:
- 1 spaghetti squash
- Amylu Italian Chicken Sausage (I have tried a lot of brands and this is by far the best one)
- Yellow peppers
- Pine nuts
- Parmesan cheese
- olive oil
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut spaghetti squash in half horizontally (this part is tough but just keep pushing). Pull out all of the seeds.
Step 2: Put a little bit of salt, pepper and olive oil on the flesh of the squash and lay it flesh side down on to a cookie sheet.
Step 3: Bake for 30-40 minutes. Use a dinner fork to pull out the “noodles” from inside the squash.
Step 4: Cut zucchini and yellow pepper into small pieces and cook on the stove top with salt and pepper.
Step 4: Combine basil, olive oil, parmesan cheese and toasted pine nuts in a food processor to make pesto.
Step 5: Cut pre-cooked chicken sausage into bite-sized pieces and brown in a nonstick pan (no oil is needed)
Step 6: When sausage, pesto and squash are all finished combine in a bowl and feast!
Sorry for all the randomness, but I needed a break for the wedding pics to squeeze in some important things like shopping and food.Have a great weekend!
