Ingredients

  • 1 large spaghetti squash (approx 4 pounds)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion – diced
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 pound ground Italian Sausage
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 (530ml) Authentica Arrabiata Sauce
  • 1 500g  ricotta cheese
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • Chopped parsley to garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle with Olive Oil inside and out, and lay them cut-side down in a roasting pan. Roast for 45-60 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and garlic and cook until translucent.
  4. Add ground Italian Sausage and cook well. Stir in Authentica Arrabiata Sauce and bring to a simmer. Season with S&P to taste. Continue simmering until the squashes are ready.
  5. Once the squash is cooked and cooled. Use a fork to shred the inside of the squash, leaving about a half-inch of squash left in the shell. Mix the shredded squash into Authentica Arrabiata Sauce & meat sauce and set aside.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, parsley, and add a pinch of salt.
  7. In the same roasting pan, flip the squash shells (cut side up). Use a spoon and spread the ricotta mixture evenly over the bottom of each shell, then spoon the meat-squash mixture on top of the ricotta.
  8. Bake shells for 15 minutes at 400°F.
  9. Remove the squash and sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese over the tops of the squashes and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
  10. Garnish with parsley.
  11. Cool for 5 mins before serving.
