  1. 1 lb. Italian sausage
  2. 1 medium spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
  3. Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  4. 1 large bunch of kale, de-stemmed, and chopped
  5. 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  6. 1/3 cup chicken broth
  7. 1/2 cup coconut milk
  8. 1 clove garlic, minced
  9. 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  10. Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the squash in the microwave for 3-4 minutes to soften. Using a sharp knife, cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and discard. Place the halves, with the cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until you can poke the squash easily with a fork. Let it cool until you can handle it safely. Then scrape the insides with a fork to shred the squash into strands.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and brown. Once cooked through, remove to a plate.
  5. In the same skillet, add the onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Next add the garlic, Italian seasoning, and kale and cook for 2-3 minutes to slightly wilt the kale.
  7. Pour in the chicken broth and coconut milk and simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  8. Stir in the cooked sausage.
  9. Add the spaghetti squash into the skillet and stir well to combine. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the top has slightly browned.
  10. Serve hot.
