Italian Sausage Over Spaghetti Squash

Italian Sausage over Spaghetti SquashThis is one of the prettiest dishes.  The bright colors of the vegetables were really accented this year when I used “orangetti,” a spaghetti squash with an extra dose of beta carotene.  That bright orange just screamed vitamins and good health.  Luckily, my kids didn’t hear that message or they’d likely not have wanted to eat it.  However, they did enjoy the great Italian flavors.
