“This is an Italian meal especially constructed with the winter months in mind. When fresh is hard to find, this is a great tasting light meal to take the place of the traditional heavy winter meals.” - by Ginger
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place the spaghetti squash cut side down on a baking dish. Fill the baking dish with about 1 inch of water.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the flesh of the squash is tender and the skin is easily pierced with a fork, about 45 minutes.
- After squash goes in the oven, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the vegan sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add mushrooms, and cook for 3 more minutes. Stir the tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, Italian seasoning, brown sugar, sea salt, and black pepper. Cover and simmer while the squash continues to cook, about 35 minutes.
- Scoop the flesh from the squash onto a plate, and use two forks to separate and fluff up the strands of squash. Top with the sauce to serve.
