I know you posted a while ago, but I have a recipe I love and have modified to be a bit healthier. Saute 1 c onions, 1 c bell pepper and 1 c chopped mushrooms until softened then add turkey sausage (16 oz). I usually throw in some oregano, thyme and basil at this point as well. When the sausage is cooked through add about 1tbsp of flour (to thicken - if you like loose sauce you can skip this). Add 1 28 oz can of whole tomatoes (kind of cut them up a bit or use diced tomatoes depending on the texture you like) and 1 stalk fresh broccoli. Simmer until thickened. Add in your cooked pasta of choice (I use whole wheat penne or ziti). Top with some skim milk mozzarella & let melt.

I think it tastes like pizza. I didn't think that broccoli would go well but I've been addicted to the combo ever since.

I like spaghetti squash instead of noodles. Cut the squash in half and put it face down on a cookie sheet. Bake it at 350 for about 30-45 minutes until it is soft. Just scrape it with a fork and the squash comes out in strings. I like it with marinara sauce or with butter and a little parmesan cheese.

One of my favorite dishes to make I saw on a show that taught How to get veggies into your kids that won't eat them...

Grate Zucchini, like you would carrots for salad, saute in a tblsp of olive oil, with one or two cloves of garlic... depending on what you like. Sautee until the shreds are really cooked down, add a can of diced, seasoned tomatoes, and let simmer while you cook your pasta. Drain pasta when cooked, add the sauce and grate fresh parmesan or romano cheese over it and enjoy. It is really a quick dish to make and quite good especially if you don't really like zucchini, you can't really tell what it is.

I am surprised i tried that also . same results . ok . i take plain tomatoes and cook them down and add some spices and cook for awhile . then i add hot sausage and cook it with the sauce . I sometimes use wheat pasta . remember to keep a cup or so of the water you cooked the pasta with to add to your saUCE . MAKE THE FLAVOR REALLY GREAT . GOOD LUCK .

I usually take Italian turkey sausage out of the casing and use instead of ground beef in any recipe.

I was thinking the same thing about "pasta". I searched the website for spaghetti and while the first 5 or 6 recipes were for the squash, the following had pasta in the recipes. You could also make one of the sauces from the squash recipes and just substitute pasta for it. Most of them looked pretty good. Let us know how it turns out.

thats a good question! LOL! It never occurred to me that spaghetti would bring up spaghetti squash! Maybe try "pasta" ???? You might get a lot of not-what-you-wanted, but it will be along the same vein.... ???

Good luck and Great Job looking for new things! :)

Hi Everyone!

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I was trying to do a search on SparkRecipes for Spaghetti, but I keep getting back recipes using Spaghetti Squash. Am I typing in something wrong?

For tomorrow night's Dinner, I plan to make Spaghetti. I normally use Ground Beef but this time, I wanted to make Spaghetti using Italian Sausage. Does anyone know of a good recipe to use? I plan to use lots of colors: Red and Green Bell Pepper and Onion. And I plan to using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and some kind of Spaghetti Sauce.

Thanks!
