Paleo Spaghetti Pie

Paleo Spaghetti Pie
Found on PalOMG
Makes 4 Servings

1 spaghetti squash (600 – 800 grams)
1 pound hot Italian sausage (5 links)
½ yellow onion, diced
1 cup sugarfree pizza sauce
1 tsp dried basil
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
3 eggs, whisked

Preheat oven to 400. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Place it cut side down on a baking sheet; bake for 25 minutes until skin gives when you press on it. Remove from oven and decrease heat to 350. While squash bakes, grease square baking dish with olive oil and cook sausage and onion together over medium heat in a large pan. Add pizza sauce, basil and red pepper flakes. Once squash has cooled, remove squash threads into dish. Pour cooked/hot sausage mixture over squash threads. Pour whisked eggs on top and gently mix into dish until you no longer see eggs. Bake for 1 hour until crust appears on top.

Review: This recipe is seriously amazing. We have made it 3 or 4 times now and just love it. I have considered trying to do half ground beef as it's very spicy but honestly, we love the spice and I would never, ever know that pasta wasn't in this - true story. This is a major favorite! It even tastes like it has cheese on it with that crust!
