We all know spaghetti squash is supposed to be super good for you, but the last time I made it people were literally gagging over the taste!l I made it like I would have spaghetti, it was bad. I saw this recipe and the lady said her kids loved it, honestly I thought I could sneak it in there maybe and they wouldn’t even notice that there was squash in it! So I gave it a shot, I didn’t make mine the way she made hers, so I’ll link you hers and then I’ll tell you mine!

Original recipe: Primal Pepperoni Pizza Casserole


  • 1 med spaghetti squash
  • home made spaghetti sauce (extra veggies)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of mozzarella
  • 25 or so pepperoni

You have to roast the spaghetti squash first, so that you just cut in half, place face down on a cookie sheet and pop in the oven at 300 until it’s fully cooked. You can poke a fork in it and it comes right out, no sticking. Scoop the seeds and then using a fork, scrape the inside of the squash gently and it will come out looking like spaghetti noodles, which I think it really neat!

You can prepare your sauce while that is roasting if you’re good at multitasking, so I put in the usual – ground beef, peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic and spaghetti sauce from a jar.

Now things start to go awry here because I *again* didn’t read all the way through.  I thought I knew what it was going to say.  So I mixed my sauce, the squash and a couple eggs all together and through it all into a 9×13″ pan, then I went back to instructions and baked it at 375F for 30 mins until the sauce was set and no longer runny. 20160111_173256

Added the mozzarella to the top, tossed the pepperoni on there and broiled until it was all nice and bubbly. Then I gave it to my kids who I thought for sure would hand it back, but they didn’t! They each ate two bowls! I had to tell them stop because their dad was at work and they were fixing to eat his portion! Then he came home later, AND ATE ALL HIS TOO!! I was so shocked and happy to find a recipe with good stuff, that they hate, in it that they will eat!

Here’s the kicker, when meal planning this week, they requested this meal!

*Mind Blown*
