I wanted to pass this recipe along for all you SB dieters-this tastes so good! It's one of my favs! The Spaghetti Squash adds a little crunch to this dish, but all the flavors blend so well.

Sausage and Peppers with Spaghetti Squash

You'll need:
1 lb. Turkey Sweet Italian Sausage-casing removed
3 sliced Bell Peppers of your choice-I use Green, Red and Yellow
1 onion- sliced
2-3 TBSP Olive Oil-divided
2 TBSP Italian Seasoning
1 14oz. can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. Parmesean Cheese
1 c. Part Skim Mozzarella

1 Spaghetti Squash- I cook this in the oven, it tastes the best!

How to make:

Remove the casings from the sausage, add olive oil to a pan and cook until brown, add the peppers, onions, tomatoes, Italian Seasonings, salt and pepper. Drizzle a little more olive oil on the mixture, bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 min.

While the sausage is cooking cut Spaghetti Squash in half, seed it and brush a little olive oil to keep it from drying out. Place in a shallow pan in a 350 oven for 30 min. You'll know it's done when the flesh starts to shred with a fork.

After the 30 minutes is up on the sausage, add the parmesean and mozzarella, cover and cook about 15 minutes more, enough for the cheese to melt.

After the Squash is done, I shred the flesh and divide it amoung plates and place the sausage mixture on top!

I hope you enjoy!:D
