Spaghetti Squash Marinara with Italian Sausage and Garlic Bread

Spaghetti Squash Marinara with Italian Sausage and Garlic Bread

Serves 4

We love the combo of spaghetti squash with our fresh sausage, ground in-house using the same meat that's in our case, following the same strict standards, including no antibiotics, ever! Top this recipe with grated parmesan cheese, if desired.

  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
  • 2 links fresh Italian pork sausage, removed from casings
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cups prepared marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 clove garlic, mashed into a paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 4 slices whole wheat hearth bread

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Arrange squash in a large baking dish, cut-sides down. Pour 1/2 cup water into the dish and bake until just tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Rake with a fork to remove flesh in strands.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and cook sausage, until almost done, breaking into smaller pieces, about 5 minutes. Add onion and cook, 6 to 8 minutes more. Add sauce and simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Keep warm. Combine butter, garlic and basil; spread onto one side of bread; place on a baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes. Portion squash into bowls, top with sauce and serve with garlic bread.
