We had some sausage and spaghetti squash to be cooked so I found this recipe and put the two together! Apparently this was inspired by "The Godfather" though in the absence of true pasta, I doubt this would pass for them.
1 spaghetti squash
4-4 oz links sweet Italian sausage
5 assorted bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c coconut oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c minced flat leaf parsley
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese to taste
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. If it is too difficult to cut (even for us CrossFitters, this is a possibility), pierce a few holes in it and microwave for a few minutes. Place cut down side on baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes.
2. While the squash is baking, slice sausages lengthwise, and remove the casings. Brown sausages in a large skillet over medium-high heat with a drizzle of the coconut oil. Remove sausages to a platter.
3. Add the bell peppers, garlic, oregano and basil to the skillet, and drizzle with the remaining coconut oil. Saute over medium heat until peppers are tender.
4. Toss the pepper mixture with the spaghetti squash and sausages until well blended, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with Italian parsley and Parmesan cheese.
