Spaghetti Squash Pizza Pie Recipe

Spaghetti Squash and I are best friends. I love the stuff. I find it super easy to roast in the oven and it goes with just about everything. My family enjoys it as the pasta under spaghetti sauce or as a side dish with some salt and pepper. So when I heard someone say they had never had spaghetti squash I was amazed. After a few minutes of discussing ways to fix it and how best to eat it, she  agreed to give it a try. Thank you Jill for suggesting this recipe for her first adventure into the world of spaghetti squash. This is one recipe that everyone likes, seriously - Everyone! Its tastes like pizza. 

Spaghetti Squash Pizza Pie

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • ½ medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 cup pizza sauce (no sugar added)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 eggs, whisked

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place spaghetti squash cut side down on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a fork easily goes into it, then reduce oven heat to 350 degrees. While squash is cooking, place a skillet over medium heat. Add Italian sausage, onion, and peppers. Cook until meat is no longer pink and veggies are soft. Once squash is done cooking, remove the seeds and shred. Place into a greased 13×9 glass baking dish. Add sausage and vegetable mixture to squash and combine. Add pizza sauce, dried basil, and salt and pepper to the baking dish and mix well. Finally, add whisked eggs to the baking dish and mix thoroughly. Bake for 1 hour.
