Spaghetti Squash Bowls with Turkey Sausage and Marinara Sauce: ditch the carbs and the fatty meat for a healthier meal that’s just as flavorful.

Today’s recipe is sponsored by Jennie-O, who supplied me with the Italian Style Turkey Sausage, but as usual, all my opinions are my own. Jump to Recipe

These Spaghetti Squash Bowls are the first recipe I’m sharing that uses the Easy Homemade Marinara from my last post.

I like to make big batches of it and store it in the freezer for even quicker meals. But for this dish, it’s easy to make the sauce while the spaghetti squash bakes.

I still feel like I’m running around hectically, adjusting to freelance life, bidding on jobs, and trying to make sense of the whole process. Comfort food is still very much the thing for me right now.

Fast is good for the days I need to power through. But right now I need a slow day, a slow weekend. I need things to roast or simmer away on the stove while I sip on a latte or cappuccino.

I think these Spaghetti Squash Bowls bring a little bit of both to the table. Squash has to cook for almost an hour in the stove, but this recipe has very little fuss involved. So it’s both fast and slow.

Next week I’ll share the Ricotta Zucchini Lasagna but meanwhile, have a slow weekend.

Ricotta Zucchini Lasagna uses whole milk basket ricotta and easy homemade marinara to make an extremely flavorful but light main dish. #zucchinilasagna #zucchini #healthy #lowcarb #homemade #maindish | www.megiswell.com

  • Add the marinara sauce and continue cooking until it’s hot. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • Once the squash is done, use a fork to scrape the squash, creating the “spaghetti”.
