You will never believe this creamy low carb Spaghetti Squash Carbonara with Tomatoes, Asparagus, and Sausage is actually a healthier version of your favorite rich, indulgent Carbonara with under 400 calories.

For years I was always afraid to make Carbonara for fear of making everyone sick with a contaminated raw egg. That's until I saw a cooking demonstration a couple of weeks ago and was assured multiple times that the egg fully cooks as long as the pasta, or in this case squash, is piping hot when you mix it in. Now with my fears in check, I am loving making this creamy indulgent Spaghetti Squash Carbonara at home. It tastes just like the real thing but without all the extra calories from the pasta. And the addition of tomatoes, asparagus, and chicken sausages adds more good for you veggies and plenty of protein to make it a healthy, well rounded meal you will definitely love.

  1. Pierce your spaghetti squash all over with a knife. Microwave for 8-12 minutes until soft to the touch. Carefully open, scoop out the seeds, and pull into strands using a fork. You can also roast it in the oven.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the Parmesan, salt, pepper, and egg.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and asparagus and cook for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Finally add the tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes until tender.
  4. When the squash is ready, immediately stir into the egg and Parmesan mixture. The egg will cook as it is stirred into the squash. Add tomatoes and asparagus, tossing until sauce thickens. Stir in the basil.
