  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  5. Return skillet to heat; add 1 tablespoon olive oil, spring onions, and garlic, cook and stir until onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini, red peppers, and Italian seasoning and continue to cook and stir until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir spaghetti squash and feta cheese into vegetable mixture; cook and stir until cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Stir sausage into vegetable mixture; season with salt and lemon pepper. Sprinkle tomato and parsley on top to serve.
