Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash, cooked and drained see cooking suggestions and draining method above
  • 2 tsp coconut or avocado oil + extra for greasing
  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic minced, or to taste
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce I suggest looking for one with no added sugar.
  • 15-20 pepperonis I suggest using nitrate free ones.
  • fresh basil for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350℉.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high. Add the chicken/turkey, onion, garlic and salt. Cook, breaking apart the meat, until meat is browned and the onions
    are tender. This should take about 8 minutes. Remove the meat from the heat and set aside.
  • Place drained squash into a large bowl. Add cooked meat to the bowl. Add sauce, 1 1/2 cup of cheese and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine.
  • Pour squash mixture into a lightly greased casserole dish.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese and pepperoni. Return to oven and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to turn a golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Garnish with chopped basil, if desired. Enjoy warm!
