Pizza Spaghetti Casserole

I’m back from my time off of having a baby back in March – thanks for your patience with me 🙂

I had a healthy baby girl, Olivia Claire, and she’s a cutie, if I do say so myself!

Anyway…now that life is back to a new normal, I’ve started incorporate new recipes in our meals – heck, I started making meals, period.

I wanted to share with you this new favorite – Pizza Spaghetti Casserole.  I normally do not care much for spaghetti squash, but in this recipe, I really liked it.

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 pound italian or regular sausage
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup pizza sauce (no sugar added)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • Add anything you like with pizza: veggies, basil, cheese, etc…
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.  Cook for another 30 minutes or so.
  3. Once squash is done cooking, remove threads and place in a large bowl.
  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.  Drain the grease & add to bowl with squash.
  5. Add pizza sauce, dried basil and salt and pepper, toppings to the bowl and mix well.  I used cheese in mine pictured
  6. Lastly, add whisked eggs to the bowl and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
  7. Pour into a greased 8×8 dish.
  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.

Enjoy!!
