Spicy Sausage Lasagna Spaghetti Squash that is easy to make and packed with flavor.
Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite foods to make. It is a squash where the meat is like spaghetti noodles when cooked. You can use a fork to pull it out, and it separates into noodles. You can see this in the photo below.
Spaghetti squash is a great substitute pasta for those who can’t have gluten, or prefer to reduce their carbs and white flour intake. And one of the things I love about making lasagna spaghetti squash is that it is eazy peazy, and tastes so good. Even my kids love it. I think I may have told my 9 year old that Lebron James eats it, and now he wants it almost every day. I lied. But for all I know, he does!
I love that my children will gobble it up. It makes it so much easier on me to make some dinner without having to listen to any whines or complaints. This is a variation to another Spaghetti Squash Lasagna I make. Similar idea, but instead of mixing all the ingredients before putting them in, I layer them as you would in a regular lasagna. I am not sure which version I like best.
