Recipe Notes

Melissa’s Modifications:

As I mentioned, I prefer to use spaghetti squash or butternut as my base to receive the delicious sauce. You can keep the dish vegetarian or vegan if you wish, but equally delicious for those of you that love a meat sauce, just substitute for the sausage of your choice, preparing prior to adding to sauce or add time of cooking to be sure the meat sausage is cooked throughly.

Sans Pasta: I cook/steam in open glass dish with water, then slice in half lengthwise, clean out the seeds (I save & roast them- delicious). Once cleaned out, place the half squash on a plate, place the sauce inside the squash own serving bowl…sprinkle with some parmesan cheese (reg or vegan), makes a lovely presentation!
