Whats better than a recipe with spaghetti squash or kale? A recipe with both. I was checking out some low carb recipes on Pinterest and I found a Sausage, Kale, and Spaghetti squash. I thought Id check it out, and simplify it a bit. Kale pairs so well with sausage and spaghetti squash pairs well with with almost everything. Im a big fan of making dinners in less than 30 minutes. The original cook time on this dish was around and hour and 20 minutes. I did it in about 25. Woot woot. Turns out, my variation is super delicious, and I thought this low carb dinner would be worth sharing.

  • 2 small spaghetti squash, halved and de-seeded
  •  1 bunch kale, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • 1 pound Italian Sausage
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella 
In a casserole dish, place spaghetti squash face down and fill dish with about an inch of water. Microwave for 15 minutes. While spaghetti squash is cooking, heat olive oil in large pan. Add kale to pan and sprinkle with garlic and onion powder. Saute kale on medium heat until tender. While youre sauteing the kale, cook sausage in a small pan. Once sausage is browned, add in onion and cook them through. Add meat and onion mixture to kale and cook on low heat until sausage, onion and kale lightly brown. Scrape spaghetti squash into a large bowl using a fork. Add in the kale and sausage mixture and combine. Serve immediately topped with a little mozzarella.

Makes 4 servings. 545 calories per serving, 16 net carbs, 20 grams protein.

If you want to cut down on fat and calories, go with regular ground turkey instead of Italian sausage and skip the mozzarella.
