Spaghetti Squash Marinara with Italian Sausage

Nice Italian style meal without the heaviness of pasta……..

1 (about 3 1/2 pounds) spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
1 package of Italian chicken sausage
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 cups prepared classic pasta sauce
1 clove garlic

Method

Preheat oven to 375°F. Arrange squash in dish, cut sides down. Bake until just tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Rake with a fork to remove flesh in strands. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and cook sausage until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook, 6 to 8 minutes more. Add pasta sauce and simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Keep warm. Portion squash into bowls, top with sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan if desired.

This is also good with pepperoni – nitrite free of course!
