Chicken Sausage Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Squash is one of my favorite vegetables and I love using the squash as a form of spaghetti. This recipe combines classic Italian flavors with a modern spin by using the squash instead of traditional pasta. The melted cheese adds flavor and makes the meal very comforting: perfect for cold weather. This recipe makes 2 servings!
