ALMOST 5 INGREDIENT PIZZA SPAGHETTI PIE (PALEO)

If you know my wife- you know she loves simple but amazing recipes for our home.  We usually try to find things that are around 5 ingredients and that the kids will enjoy.  We substitute in one pound of ground turkey, if you are looking for a leaner option.

Here is a keeper that we got from PaleoOMG:  http://paleomg.com/almost-5-ingredient-pizza-spaghetti-pie/

 

Here is the gist of it:

Almost 5 Ingredient Pizza Spaghetti Pie

 
Prep time  
Cook time  
Total time  
Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
  • 1 large spaghetti squash (about 600 grams)
  • 1 pound italian sausage
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup pizza sauce (no sugar added)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • (optional: add anything you like with pizza: veggies, basil, even cheese if you do primal)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Place spaghetti squash cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the skin of the squash gives when you press on it. Then reduce oven heat to 350 degrees.
  3. Once squash is done cooking, remove threads and place in an 8×8 greased baking dish.
  4. Place a large pan over medium heat. Add italian sausage and onion. Cook until pink no longer remains in the sausage and it is broken up into pieces.
  5. Add pizza sauce, dried basil and salt and pepper to the pan and mix well.
  6. Add sausage mixture to the 8×8 dish and mix well with spaghetti squash threads.
  7. Lastly, add whisked eggs to the baking dish and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
  8. Place in oven and bake for 1 hour or until the top of the mixture forms a slight crust that doesn’t give when you press on it in the middle of the dish.
  9. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This is an easy one that the family will enjoy!
