Spaghetti Squash with Italian Turkey Sausage, Broccoli Raab with Vodka Sauce

I went to spend the weekend at a friends house. I took a Roasted Spaghetti Squash and some Broccoli Raab with me that I had received as a part of my Harvest 2 U box... I made this dish in less than 20 minutes, I used a Jar of Vodka Sauce (no time to make homemade) I was impressed at how wonderful it tasted... if your interested to know what kind it was.... Vons Brand, black label, Vodka Sauce. 

1 Spaghetti Squash, Roasted (see how to roast below)
1 Bunch Broccoli Raab, rinsed and chopped
4-5 Garlic Cloves, rough sliced
1 Pound Italian Turkey Sausage, casings removed
1 Jar Vodka Sauce
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Parmesan Cheese 

This is what buttered Spaghetti Squash looks like. 

Cooked Turkey with Garlic and Broccoli Raab

Heated Vodka Sauce

Heated Vodka Sauce over Spaghetti Sauce

First to roast your Spaghetti Squash preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Wash and dry your spaghetti squash. With a small thin knife or a fork puncture the skin of the squash, be careful not to hurt yourself, the skin can be tough.  Place on a cookie sheet and bake covered with foil for 1 hour.  Stick a thin sharp knife into the squash... if it goes in easy without resistance, it is done.  If not, cook covered for another 30 minutes.  Let the squash cool completely.  Slice the squash the long way, with a spoon scoop the seeds and center.  Next, take a fork and shred the squash strings out.  Place in a bowl and heat in the microwave with some butter for about 3 minutes. 

In a large skillet heat up oil and add the sausage and the garlic.  Break the sausage as you cook it.  When the sausage is thoroughly cooked add the chopped Broccoli Raab and cook for about 1 minute.  

In a separate saucepan heat the Vodka Sauce. 

In a large serving platter arrange the buttered Spaghetti Squash, pour the hot Vodka Sauce over the squash and the Sausage with Broccoli Raab over that.  Sprinkle with Shredded Parmesan Cheese and serve right away.  

This dish is absolutely delicious... and if you roast the squash the day before your can prepare this dish in just minutes.
