Paleo Pizza Spaghetti Pie

Yet again it's a recipe experiment week!! While the week is coming to a close, I tried a few good ones. Shrimp fraDiavlo was one that was pretty tasty.. I don't usually make my own sauce and this one was a quick and simple take on a spicy classic. I'll get that recipe up later but for now I'm focused on what's in the oven.

If you know me, you know my weird obsession with the Spaghetti Pie my mother makes. It's so good. And it's actually the first thing I ever made for tt for dinner back in our early days of courtship. The frozen salty meatballs, the loads of ooey-gooey cheese, and let's not forget the spaghetti. Oh, and the butter. 

If I could make this in a swimming pool and climb right on in, I would. No seriously, I would do that. And probably then either eat my way out, or drown right there in the cheese. 

As even a non-Paleo-er can imagine, the items listed above probably weren't around in the time of the cavemen. Frozen meatballs? Um no. Delightfully convenient, probably too convenient for the Flinstones. Lame. BUT- fear not!! For I have found a solution. Paleo Pizza Spaghetti Pie!! I can't promise how it tastes, but I can definitely attest to how it smells. And it smells like pizza. And yummy. 

{Paleo} Pizza Spaghetti Pie 
Recipe by paleOMG.com

ingredients

1 large spaghetti squash 
1 lb sausage {I used organic, grass fed, spicy Italian pork sausage, casing removed}
1 small or half of a large yellow onion, diced 
Dry or fresh basil to taste
1 cup pizza sauce {no sugar added}
3 eggs, beaten

instructions 

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Cook spaghetti squash {can bake, or I like to remember that I'm not actually a cave woman and cook mine in the microwave- quarter, scoop seeds, throw in a Pyrex with about a half inch of water and cover with Saran Wrap. Nuke for 11-12 mins} 
  3. Meanwhile, cook your onion and sausage until there is no pink left in the meat; as it cooks, work to break it apart into small pieces
  4. When cooked, add pizza sauce and basil and mix well
  5. When squash is cooked, remove the strands and put into a 8x8 baking dish that has been greased. Add sausage and sauce mixture and mix well
  6. Add eggs and mix until you can no longer see the egg
  7. Bake at 400 for an hour, you will notice that the top forms a slight crust
  8. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving 

notes

  • You can also add any other "pizza toppings" such as other veggies or cheese if you are so inclined. 
  • I can't wait to eat it. My whole house smells like I'm going to eat something naughty. 

Happy Friday!
