Italian Chicken Sausage Marinara on Spaghetti Squash
In light of feeling like a sausage and overcoming it, I decided to cook with sausage! If you haven’t already read my Sausage and Turtle article in the Real Life Topics section, head over!
This recipes is tasty and very low calorie-320 calories to be exact. It requires only one pan and the oven. Its delicious.
Prepping the Squash
To prep the Squash, cut it in half-long wise.
Scoop out the guts and cover it/rub it in about a tablespoon of avocado butter.
Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees
Once the oven is ready, put the squash in the oven and let it cook for about 25 minutes or until the edges are soft and slightly brown.
Shred the squash with a fork
You do not have to use an Instapot for this recipe, however if you have one, it will add a depth of flavor and reduce your cook time.
While I used Italian Chicken Sausage in this recipe, I traditionally use Ground Italian Chicken and feel that the ground chicken makes this sauce have a more robust flavor personally.
Tomato Sauce-1 Can
Plum/Roma Tomatoes-3 to 4
Canned Diced Tomatoes-1 Can
Tomato Paste-1 to 2 Tbls
Chicken Broth-1 Cup
Ground Italian Chicken/Chicken Sausage-1lb
Onion-1 whole onion
Minced Garlic-1 to 2 Tbls
Add all the ingredients in the Instapot or if you are cooking on the stove top, into a large saucepan.
If you are cooking on the stove top, cook about 25 to 30 minutes, season to taste.
If you are cooking in the instapot, set it to Pressure Cooker for 10 minutes and do a Quick Release.
Ladle the sauce onto your squash and dig in.
I like to add Trader Joe Almond Mozzarella Shreds on top.
Enjoy your low calorie, 25 minute dinner!
