So, for whatever reason, I could NOT get the lighting in my kitchen last night to highlight the beauty of this amazing dish! BUT, that didn't stop me from eating not 1, not 2, but 3 whole servings of this italian-inspired heaven.
If you've followed me for a while, you'll know that I absolutely love and adore Paleomg (Julie Bauer) and all her divine recipes. Once again, she has outdone herself and created this "Almost 5-Ingredient Pizza Spaghetti Pie," but I had a few more ingredients I needed out of my fridge, so I made a few adjustments. I think you'll find that both recipes are more than satisfying and oh so comforting as these cooler fall months roll in. On that note, here's the recipe!
1 spaghetti squash - baked
1 red onion, chopped
5 eggs, whisked
1 lb. ground bison
1 lb. mild (or spicy) Italian sausage
1 jar marinara sauce (I used Glen Muir organic)
1 package white mushroom, chopped
2 small zucchini, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Italian spice seasoning - or oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional: Goat chevre for topping
Preheat oven to 350, place squash in an oven-friendly dish and rub outside with avocado or coconut oil. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on size of squash. I did this earlier in the morning, but you can do it during your meal prep as well. Once the squash is baked, scrape out the threads and put them all in a large baking dish. Turn oven up to 400. In a large (and I mean LARGE) skillet, add onion, sausage, bison and spices and cook until browned. Add in mushrooms and zucchini and cook until slightly soft. Add mixture to squash in baking dish, or if your skillet is large enough, add squash to skillet instead. Add in sauce and eggs and mix until you can no longer see eggs. Put baking dish or skillet in oven and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until the eggs have formed a tiny crust on top. If adding goat cheese, sprinkle it on top during the last ten minutes of baking. Let sit 5-10 minutes and serve!
Hope you enjoy as much as I did! Let me know what you think in the comments and don't forget to check out Paleomg and all her other amazing recipes as well!
