I first created my son’s favorite dish using homegrown squash, kielbasa and salsa. This variation uses only four ingredients. —Pam Copeland, Taylorsville, Utah

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash

  1. Cut squash lengthwise in half; discard seeds. Place halves on a microwave-safe plate, cut side down. Microwave, uncovered, on high 15-20 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add sausage; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. When squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to separate strands. Add squash, pico de gallo, salt and pepper to sausage; heat through, tossing to combine. Yield: 6 servings.
Health Tip: Eating lower carb, but still want a homey, satisfying dinner? One cup cooked spaghetti squash has about 10 g carbs versus 45 g for regular spaghetti.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
