Spinach and artichoke dip has always been one of my favorite things to eat. I have trouble resisting it on any menu and want to make it pretty much every weekend during football season. This past week, I was seriously craving some spinach artichoke dip but since I didn't want to make it dinner, I decided to pair it with spaghetti squash and chicken sausage. The spinach and artichoke makes a perfect creamy sauce and the spaghetti squash keeps the calorie count low and diet friendly.
