Ingredients

  • 1/2 spaghetti squash, cooked
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato or pizza sauce
  • 1 lb ground sausage (beef would work too)
  • 1/2 large onion, sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 package Applegate Farms pepperoni (or any other nitrate-free brand)
  • Additional toppings of choice (such as more sausage, random chopped veggies, and fresh organic mozzarella)

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Spaghetti Squash

  1. Cook Spaghetti Squash: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, and place it cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until tender. Once cooked, use a fork to scrape out the strands and set aside.

Step 2: Cook the Sausage and Vegetables

  1. Cook Sausage: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground sausage until browned and cooked through. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Sauté Onion: In the same skillet, add the sliced onion and sauté until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Combine Ingredients

  1. Mix Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked spaghetti squash, cooked sausage, sautéed onion, tomato or pizza sauce, eggs, salt, pepper, dried basil, and dried oregano. Mix until well combined.

Step 4: Assemble the Pot Pie

  1. Layer Toppings: In a large baking dish or pie dish, spread the spaghetti squash mixture evenly. Top with pepperoni slices and any additional toppings of your choice, such as more sausage, chopped vegetables, and fresh mozzarella.

Step 5: Bake

  1. Bake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the pot pie for 25-30 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Step 6: Serve

  1. Serve and Enjoy: Allow the pot pie to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy your Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Pot Pie!
