Ingredients

  • 1

    pound grass-fed ground beef

  • 8

    ounces chopped pepperoni, divided (we like Applegate Farms w/ no nitrates and dairy free)

  • 1

    small onion, diced small

  • 4

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    teaspoon sea salt (or more to taste)

  • 1

    teaspoon EACH oregano, basil, and thyme

  • 4

    cups roasted spaghetti squash noodles (apx, see cooking notes above)

  • 2

    cups favorite spaghetti sauce – we use my Homemade Blender Pasta Sauce

  • 2

    eggs

  • ½

    cup Daiya mozzarella cheese or pecorino romano, and few tablespoons extra for sprinkling, optional

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 2.In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the ground beef, 1/2 of the pepperoni, onion, and garlic. 3.As the ground meat cooks, sprinkle in the seasonings. Taste (when cooked!) and add more to your liking if necessary. 4.In a large bowl, mix the warm beef mixture, spaghetti sauce, squash threads, eggs, and cheese of choice. 5.Place into a greased casserole dish ( I used a 9 X 9). 6.Top with the remaining pepperoni and a sprinkling of cheese. 7.Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
