With a small knife, pierce squash all over. On microwave-safe plate, microwave squash on high for 12 to 14 minutes or until tender.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes or until browned. With slotted spoon, transfer sausage to plate; set aside.

Add onion and bell pepper to skillet; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender. Stir in kale; cover and cook for 5 minutes or until kale is tender. Add tomatoes and sausage; cook, uncovered, stirring, until tomatoes soften, about 3 to 4 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. With two forks, scrape out pulp and transfer to large bowl. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons oil and salt and pepper to taste.
