Spicy Sausage & Spaghetti Squash Pizza Pie

My go-to on Friday nights to keep the whole family healthy and happy!

This dish has become a family favorite in the Talamo household. A spin on the traditional spicy sausage pizza making it is a fan favorite for Friday nights.

Makes 4 servings
The Goods:
1 medium sized baked spaghetti squash
1 pound Italian spicy ground sausage
1 can tomato sauce (look for a brand without any
added sugar, I actually used hunts!)
1-2 tbsp of your favorite spicy sauce, I used Trader Joes Zhoug spicy herbal sauce or omit if you don't like spice
2 cups chopped spinach (sub for your favorite veggie)
1 cup mushrooms
1 cup chopped red onion
3 eggs whisked together
How to:
Bake spaghetti squash (ahead of time, even the day before):
  1. Slice in half horizontally and scoop out seeds and goop.
  2. Place squash side face down in a casserole dish with 1 inch water.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes (depending on size of squash) or until you can place a knife through the skin.
  4. Scrape the spaghetti-like strands from the skin and refrigerate until time for use.
Pizza Pie:
  1. Preheat over to 425 degree F and set aside a lightly greased 8" X 11" baking dish.
  2. In a medium sized sauce pan, saute ground sausage and onions on medium heat until meat is no longer pink in the middle.
  3. Add tomato sauce and all remaining ingredients, except for the whisked eggs and combine.
  4. Add meat mixture into a 8" X 11" baking dish, adding the whisked eggs, and mix until thoroughly combined.
  5. Place in oven on middle baking rack and bake for 50-55 minutes at 425 degrees or until lightly brown on top​. If you can do dairy, sprinkle with mozzarella for the ultimate pizza pie!
  6. Let cool for 5-10 minute, serve, and enjoy!
