A few tips for making Sausage and Peppers Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Cook spaghetti squash how you want to. For this stuffed spaghetti squash recipe I use the oven baked spaghetti squash cooking method, however you can use a different way to cook spaghetti squash if you prefer. Just check out how to cook spaghetti squash, for other cooking methods.
Bake in a baking dish. As much as I love baking spaghetti squash in the bowls after I have added everything together, there are times that I find it easier to bake in a baking dish.
Prep the day before. If you do not want to do all of the cooking in one day, you can cook the sausage and peppers in the crockpot the day before. Store the sausage and peppers in the fridge and then the next day cook your spaghetti squash and finish cooking. I have done this when I know I am going to be short on time to get it all done in one day.
