This recipe is a deliciously different way to get your family to eat vegetables. It's a favorite summer meal at our house.—Joyce Hunsberger, Quakertown, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (about 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Halve squash lengthwise and discard seeds. Place, cut side down, in a microwave-safe dish. Add the water; cover and microwave on high for 12-15 minutes or until squash is tender. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large skillet until no longer pink; drain. Add the onion, green pepper, zucchini and garlic. Cook for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally; drain. Add the beans, tomatoes, Italian seasoning and salt. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  3. When squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to separate strands; place in a serving dish. Top with sausage mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
