Let's Make It
1
Pierce squash several times with tip of sharp knife or fork to allow steam to escape. Place squash in shallow microwaveable dish. Microwave on HIGH 10 to 15 min. or just until squash is softened, turning every 5 min. Set aside.
2
Heat oven to 475ºF. Crumble sausage into large nonstick skillet; cook on medium-high heat 2 min. or until evenly browned, stirring frequently. Stir in onions; cook and stir 5 min. Add peppers and garlic; cook 5 min., stirring occasionally.
3
Cut squash in half; remove and discard seeds. Scoop out squash strands. Add to sausage mixture; mix lightly. Stir in pasta sauce. Spoon into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; cover.
4
Bake 20 to 25 min. or until heated through. Meanwhile, combine cheese and parsley.
5
Sprinkle cheese mixture over squash. Bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until cheese is melted.
Kitchen Tips
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Light Dressing, and a loaf of crusty bread to soak up all the delicious juices.
Note
Since microwave ovens vary in wattage, you may have to adjust the cooking time needed to microwave the squash.
For a Spicy Dish
If you like spicy foods, try preparing with hot Italian sausage. Otherwise, use a sweet Italian sausage.
