What you need:
6 sausage links, (remove the casings)
1 spaghetti squash, about 2 pounds
1 tablespoons minced garlic
1 dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced mushrooms
Alfredo Sauce (Optional)
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil (use a baking sheet with edges).
On a cutting board, carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. Be super careful, because it is really though to cut through.
Lay each half cut side up on the baking sheet.
Pour water into the baking sheet, until you have about 1/2 an inch of water in the pan. (this is why you need a baking sheet or dish with sides)
Cover with alumni foil and bake for 1 hour.
Once it us cooked all the way you should be able to use a sharp knife to easily pierce the squash skin.
Remove squash from oven and uncover them. Flip them over and re-cover.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the squash from the oven and allow to cool enough to handle.
While the squash is cooling, cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat.
Break it apart with a spatula as it cooks, and cook until brown. Once cooked, scoop sausage into a bowl and set aside.
Using the same skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Once melted, cook the mushroom with the garlic, rosemary and oregano until the mushrooms are tender.
While the mushrooms are cooking, being to prepare the squash.
Place one of the squash halves onto a cutting board. Scoop the seeds out and throw them away.
Once all the seeds have been removed, use a fork to scrap the squash out, until the shell is hollow.
It now will start to look like spaghetti!
Place spaghetti strands into a bowl and set aside. Do the same thing with the other half of the squash.
Once the mushrooms have finished cooking in the skillet, add the sausage back to the skillet. Stir and add the spaghetti squash. Add the last tablespoon of butter and toss everything together. Cook until everything is heated.
I chose to serve Alfredo over mine, because I LOVE Alfredo pasta. But it's not necessarily needed to make this taste wonderful!. Give it a try! Just think of all the dishes that you could use Spaghetti Squash in instead of regular pasta!
