I used ground beef and seasoned it with Italian seasoning. I don't like smoked kielbasa. My version came out very delicious.

Extremely easy and delicious. It was a perfect weeknight meal and used some spaghetti squash from our garden. Make sure to use a flavorful Pico as that's where most of the flavor comes from.

To make this recipe I used the the smoked sausage I had in my freezer. The pico adds wonderful flavor to the spaghetti squash. One tip that may be helpful is to pierce the squash with a fork several times and microwave for 15-30 seconds so it is easier to cut in half.
