Tomato cream sauce is dreamy and although it isn't something I would normally indulge it with pasta, I have no problem serving it with spaghetti squash. It's all about balance. This version couldn't be simpler and adding the chicken sausage makes it a complete meal. Vegetarians could use chickpeas instead to add protein.

1

Roast or microwave spaghetti squash until tender and scrape it out. To microwave, pierce all over with a fork/knife and microwave on high for 10-15 minutes until tender to the touch. To roast, cut in half and scoop out seeds. Spray with cooking spray and roast for 45-60 minutes at 375 degrees until tender.

2

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5-8 minutes. Add the sausages (I left them whole) and cook for 3-5 more minutes until browned on the outside.

3

Add the tomato sauce and let simmer for 20 minutes.

4

When ready to serve. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and basil. Season with salt and pepper.

5

Serve over spaghetti squash.
