Pizza Spaghetti Pie -Coach Joselyn

I love food. I look forward to meal time not only because I’m hungry, but also because I just enjoy food. I also really like cooking and feeding people, and love to try new recipes. When my husband and I decided to go “full paleo” after doing a diet challenge with Bayou City, we really never turned back. Sure, I have some ice cream or cake once in awhile. But by eating good food to fuel my body 90% of the time, I don’t feel bad about the 10% of the time I have something really deliciously yummy.

I will never be one of those people that can eat the same thing day in and day out. I definitely meal plan, but don’t often eat the same thing two weeks in a row. One recipe that I don’t mind repeating several times though is Pizza Spaghetti Pie. I make it with a spaghetti squash, and it really fills me up and makes a lot of food. I found this recipe on paleomg.com, which is a paleo blog by Juli Bauer. She has a lot of delicious stuff on there, whether you eat paleo or not.

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:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
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.
Once squash is done cooking, remove threads and place in an 8×8 greased baking dish.
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.
Add pizza sauce, dried basil and salt and pepper to the pan and mix well.
Add sausage mixture to the 8×8 dish and mix well with spaghetti squash threads.
Lastly, add whisked eggs to the baking dish and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
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.
Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

So, enjoy this recipe! I think it’s pretty tasty. Also, here’s the link to her blog! I hope you like it.
