I love spaghetti squash, so much so that a while back I made this Italian Sausage Spaghetti Squash! Once I made that, I knew I was going to have to use sausage in the spaghetti squash again. It just had a wonderful balance of flavors! The sausage gives it a little bit of zest and spice and the subtle taste of the squash balances it out.
On top of that perfect combination our garden is in abundance! So, I decided to use up what we had in the garden plus the smoked sausage and spaghetti squash to do somewhat of a spaghetti squash stir fry!
In this dish, I used Johnsonville Fully Cooked Smoked Sausage. I love that since it is fully cooked, you can quickly get dinner prepared and on the table in less than 30 minutes, plus this dinner already has all those veggies in it so it’s a one dish meal too! That’s a double win for us!
Another thing I love about Johnsonville is that they offer fully cooked turkey and chicken sausage too! I typically prefer those since they are much healthier and leaner sausage.
I think peppers are just a given as well with sausage and guess what? I have a bunch of those in the garden too!
Once I had all our veggies sliced and diced…it was time to cook!
I started by steaming the spaghetti squash. Once it was nearly done, I tossed all the remaining ingredients into a skillet and cooked them for about 20 minutes until the veggies were close to being soft.
At that point you just toss the scraped out spaghetti squash in and mix together!
Then, dinner is served!

- In a dutch oven or steamer, begin by fully steaming the spaghetti squash. Once it is steamed, scrape out the seeds with a fork. Then, use a fork to scrape out the remaining spaghetti squash and set aside.
- While the squash is steaming, dice the sausage and prepare the remaining veggies.
- Add olive oil and garlic to a skillet turning it to medium heat and add in the veggies and sausage. Let this simmer for about 15-20 minutes until nice and soft.
