Ingredients

1 small spaghetti squash (about 2 pounds)

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

8 links hot Italian sausage (pork, chicken or turkey; 1 1/2 pounds)

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Freshly grated parmesan cheese, for topping

Directions

  1. Halve the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Put the squash, cut-side up, in a large microwave-safe bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave until tender, about 20 minutes. Scoop out the flesh into a colander (use a towel to hold the squash) and shred with 2 forks.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over medium heat. Grill the sausages, turning, until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper, onion and 1 teaspoon salt and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until the vegetables begin to brown, about 4 more minutes. Toss in the squash and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the sausages and sprinkle with parmesan.
