Baked Spaghetti Squash Casserole with Spinach and Sausage


PaleOMG is one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. She has many OMG recipes - and this was definitely one of them! It made a TON, so I ate it all week, and it was delicious and filling every time. Every time I ate it, I couldn't believe that there was no cheese or cream used. I also love that you can put in anything you want. I added spinach and sausage, but you could get creative with the meats and vegetables you decide to use.

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb. cooked sausage (or another meat)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 c. spaghetti sauce (or can use pizza sauce)
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 4 c. spinach leaves (or another veggie)
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Heat spaghetti squash in microwave for about 30 seconds to make it easier to cut
  3. Cut in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and the stringy stuff
  4. Place face down on a baking sheet and cook for about 25 minutes
  5. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees
  6. Wait for squash to cool, and then rake through with a fork to make "noodles"
  7. Add "noodles" to a greased baking dish
  8. Add sausage, onion, and spinach to a pan over medium heat and cook for about 5 minutes (I used cooked sausage but you could use uncooked - cook in this step)
  9. Add spaghetti sauce, basil, salt and pepper and mix
  10. Add sauce to dish and mix with "noodles"
  11. Add whisked eggs and do one more mixing!
  12. Bake for about 1 hour until the top becomes crusty
