Busy school days, and crazy work days. No matter how you serve them up, it boils down to being too busy to prepare healthy dinners–that is, unless you have an arsenal of healthy ideas at the ready!
It’s time for another spaghetti squash casserole idea; this time for people who like Italian food! Still very easy to prepare, you can mix and match ingredients to find your favorite flavor.
This dish is easy to prepare in advance, and can be prepared and frozen prior to baking.Gluten-free and low-carb, this is a great induction meal with zip!
Italian spaghetti squash bake
½ cup sauce (I use spaghetti, check labels for the lowest count)
¼ cup water
1 cup spicy Italian sausage
1 cup mushroom
1/2 cup green pepper
1/4 cup red onion
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a casserole, mix all ingredients except cheese.
Toss shredded cheddar cheese with Parmesan and then sprinkle on top.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes.
Makes 8 1/2 cup servings.
