Spaghetti Squash With Sausage & Peppers| Indianapolis Food Blogger 5

Happy New Year!! 2016 is here and I’ve got goodness to share. The Spaghetti Squash has easily become a replacement for pasta and carb filled starches, and I can’t say that I’m mad about it. It’s light, can be seasoned just as pasta would, and it’s kid friendly. Kid friendly can be a blog post on its own. I’m lucky that Little FoodLoveTog will try just about anything I cook, so I was elated that this was meal that she enjoyed eating with her little hands. Turkey Sausage, Tomatoes, & Peppers.

This has been go-to staple on nights that I’m short one time and need to feed the crew something hearty. Growing up, my family served this dish with either rice or pasta, and I was glad that spaghetti squash could lend it hand in a healthy way. Gather up the best of peppers, tomatoes and your favorite sausage, and put this dish on the table. You’ll be glad you did! Grab the simple recipe below: Spaghetti Squash with Sausage & Peppers.

    Candace!! I just cooked spag. squash for dinner last night (we always have a pasta dish on mondays) and since I’m trying to eat cleaner i substituted pasta for spag squash and it of course was DELISH!!! Ive been substituting it for about 3 months now, and I honestly don’t miss my noodles!! I always make extra to last me through the week and use it as a side for lunch!!
