Spaghetti Squash Caserole

 
Spaghetti Squash Casserole

I have to say, I haven't made very many paleo casseroles. As I think about items to bring to a family holiday meal, the word casserole keeps coming to my mind. So I made this one tonight for dinner to test and see if it's would be good enough to bring for our Thanksgiving meal.

You will need:
1 spaghetti squash
1 lb of mild Italian sausage
2 cups of diced spinach
About 20 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 egg
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400. Now cut your spaghetti squash in half and removing the seeds. Place face down on a baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes
2. While that's cooking begin to brown the pork, garlic and onion in a skillet.
3. once pork is cooked and onion is translucent, add the spinach, tomatoes, and all seasonings.
4. Once squash is done begin to shred it with a fork into a 9x9 baking dish. Now mix in meat mixture and egg
5. Bake for 15 minutes at 400.

    Ok – so I saw that you cook your spaghetti squash face down – do you add water or anything to the pan?

  2. Marlena says:

    This sounds great. But to get it done faster, pierce squash with a knife and throw the thing in the microwave (whole) for 7-10 mins depending on size of the squash. Such a time saver! Oh and I will be trying this recipe for sure!

  3. Toni says:

    Amanda, you don’t need to add anything to the pan. The squash has enough water content in itself to steam. Very simple!

    How many servings is this?

  5. Brooke says:

    Is the egg required?

      It holds the casserole together, but honestly if for some reason you don’t like eggs, or can’t have them, I think it would be ok to leave it out.

    I made this tonight, and it was great!

    I haven’t made spaghetti squash in years but tried your recipe last night. It was very good and even better today. Thanks for sharing.
