Spaghetti Squash Supper Recipe

This recipe is a deliciously different way to get your family to eat vegetables. It's a favorite summer meal at our house.—Joyce Hunsberger, Quakertown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese


  • 1. Halve squash lengthwise and discard seeds. Place, cut side down, in a microwave-safe dish. Add the water; cover and microwave on high for 12-15 minutes or until squash is tender. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large skillet until no longer pink; drain. Add the onion, green pepper, zucchini and garlic. Cook for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally; drain. Add the beans, tomatoes, Italian seasoning and salt. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  • 3. When squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to separate strands; place in a serving dish. Top with sausage mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Yield: 6 servings.

"Good recipe—really like that the majority of ingredients is vegetables and not meat. I think the sausage plays a key role and important to get a great tasting one. Recipe is also very versatile, next time will omit the beans and add mushrooms. I agree with another reviewer to mix it all together prior to serving."

"I made this tonight to use up a spaghetti squash. It was good! The spaghetti squash was interesting and healthier than pasta. I wasn't sure which sausage I was supposed to use -- and was afraid of accidentally ending up with breakfast sausage -- so I got the Johnsonville mild Italian ground sausage that comes in the tray, not the tube. Also added a chopped tomato, since I had some to use up. And left out the added salt; didn't miss it."

"The recipe looks very good.I like spaghetti squash .But I would mix the other vegetables with the Spaghetti Squash at the end,since the squash does not have to much flavor.
