Ingredients

1 large spaghetti squash
or 2 small
*
1 jar pasta sauce
*
2 each italian sausage
vegetarian, cut into bite-sized pieces
*
2 cups broccoli florets
steamed
½ cup mozzarella cheese
or feta cheese, optional
*
1 small tomatoes
optional

Directions

Slice squash down the middle, lengthwise. Scoop out seeds with a spoon.

Place, cut sides down, onto a microwave safe plate and microwave for 6 minutes.

Check for tenderness with a fork. It will be very soft and yielding when it is done.

If it is not done, finish by microwaving for 2 minute increments until it is.

It can take 10 or more minutes total if its a large squash.

When squash is done, remove from microwave.

Using a potholder or kitchen glove, hold the squash in one hand and use a fork to shred the inside of it into a casserole dish.

Once you have scooped the skins clean, discard the skins.

Stir in a jar of spaghetti sauce, Italian sausages, and steamed broccoli.

If you wish, add cheese and tomato slices to top.

At this point you can cover with foil and heat in a 350℉ (180℃) oven for 20 minutes or pop it uncovered into the microwave for 6 to 7 minutes, or until warm throughout.
