Two savoury posts in a row. Seriously, who am I? But this southwest stuffed spaghetti squash was so good that I couldn’t wait to share it. I’m sure I’ll bombard you with chocolate the rest of the week!
This was insanely good. Of course, I really, really love spaghetti squash. If you don’t you obviously may not agree. But if you like spaghetti squash I may need to insist that you make this. Soon.
I could not stop eating it. I had it as a main course, and I think it would serve about 4 people as a main course, 6-8 as a side dish. I had other stuff on the table for all the squash haters in my family, but this is all I had and I was completely content.
And then I ate the leftovers for lunch the next couple of days while thanking my lucky stars that I have a family of squash haters!
I used mild Italian sausage in the filling, but you could certainly substitute the meat with spicy sausage (that would be amazing), or ground beef or turkey, or even chicken. Whatever you have. And I know spinach isn’t typically in southwest style dishes, but I had some, and I like spinach. This is very adaptable to your tastes, though, or for what you happen to have on hand.
Also, my husband insisted that it would be better with more meat (at least double he said!) but I liked it with this amount!
