Paleo 5-Ingredient Spaghetti Pie

I had just cooked up a batch of spaghetti squash in the morning so make this for our dinner. I had about this on so many blogs (and rave reviews) and having it be only 5 ingredients, it was worth a try. Although it took an hour to bake, it was so easy to put together... and totally worth the wait.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large spaghetti squash 
  • 1 pound italian sausage (we have used breakfast sausage roll and chicken sausage successfully)
  • ½ yellow onion, diced finely
  • 1 cup pizza sauce 
  • 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 45 minutes or until the skin of the squash gives when you press on it. (Or, try this whole roasting method- easy peasy.)
  3. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees, and grease an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  4. Once squash is done cooking, remove threads and place it in a large bowl.
  5. Place a large pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, and saute until semi-soft. 
  6. Add the sausage, and cook until pink no longer remains in the sausage and it is broken up into pieces.
  7. Add pizza sauce, dried basil and salt and pepper to the pan and mix well.
  8. Add sausage mixture to the bowl, and mix well with spaghetti squash threads.
  9. Lastly, add whisked eggs to the bowl and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
  10. Dump the mixture into the 8x8 greased dish.
  11. 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.
  12. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
