Anyone who is following a low carb diet knows that spaghetti squash quickly becomes a favorite way to replace traditional pasta in your favorite dishes. However when I do this, I usually like to make sure I am infusing the dish with lots of flavor to make sure I don't miss the pasta. This dish gets its flavor from the turkey sausage and the kale adds a nice earthy flavor. Rounded out with Parmesan and lemon, it makes a great dish. You can also consider adding some drained diced tomatoes or even a bit of cream (or cream cheese) if you want a richer sauce.
