Spaghetti Squash with Sausage and Peppers

I don’t eat a lot of pasta anymore since I try to stay away from processed foods, but my parents were making one of my favorite pasta dishes last night, and I got a little jealous. I’m on a spaghetti squash kick right now, so I decided to make my own version of the dish using one instead of penne pasta. It came out SO WELL! Even the boyfriend approved. (Although, he probably not the best critic, he will eat anything).
