Baked Italian Spaghetti Squash

Baked Italian Spaghetti Squash


1 cooked spaghetti squash, halved seeded & strands shredded
1 tbsp Olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 lb Italian sausage, casing removed
1 cup marinara sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Salt to taste
Healthy pinch of black pepper

Cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave. Cut in half, seed and shred the flesh, leaving it in the skins & set aside. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Sauté the garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove the sausage from the casing and add to the pan. Crumble and sauté until browned and no pink is left. Turn on the heat and stir in the marinara sauce and half the mozzarella. Divide the mixture between the two spaghetti squash halves. Top each with the remaining mozzarella and broil in the oven until cheese is slightly browned and bubbly, about 5 minutes.
