Lately I have been loving anything with sausage and broccoli. It all started with a broccoli sausage pizza at my favorite neighborhood spot and now I am obsessed. The combination of savory spice packed sausage, crisp broccoli, lots of garlic, and Parmesan cheese is guaranteed to be good and using spaghetti squash keeps everything light and healthy. I like to top with with some chopped walnuts and lemon as well - it's yummy.

1

Pierce your spaghetti squash all over with a knife. Microwave for 8-10 minutes until soft to the touch. Carefully open, scoop out the seeds, and pull into strands using a fork. You can also roast the squash halves in a 400 degree oven for 45-50 minutes until tender.

2

Add the broccoli and water to a skillet. Cover and cook on high for 3 minutes. Turn down to low and cook for 3 more minutes, shaking the pan a few times. Remove and set aside.

3

Add the sausage to the pan. Brown completely. Add the olive oil, garlic, and shallots. Cook until fragrant and shallots are tender. Add the broccoli and stir until it is warm.

4

Toss with the spaghetti squash. Top with Parmesan, walnuts, and fresh lemon juice.
