spaghetti squash with sausage and kale
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ pound of italian chicken sausage
  • 1 bunch of lacinto kale
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice a spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds, drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with the sage leaves and season with salt and pepper, then place cut side down on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake the squash for 45 minutes, or until the squash flesh separates easily into strands with a fork.
  4. In a skillet over medium heat, saute 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the chopped garlic and sausage. Cook until the sausage begins to brown, remove the sausage from the pan and set aside.
  5. Remove the tough inner stems from the kale and slice thinly into ribbons. Add the kale to the skillet with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and sauté until the kale is wilted and slightly softened. Add the sausage back to the pan along with the squash and cook until everything is heated through.
  6. Remove from the heat and toss in the ½ the parmesan. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the remaining parmesan.
