Baked “Spaghetti” Squash

Whew! #Choctoberfest officially over!  I love chocolate as much as the next, but I think I became a diabetic last week just looking all that chocolate. Time to start eating a bit healthier not only for me, but for my clothing’s sake 😉 I think secretly my pants are screaming “Help Me”.  This Baked “Spaghetti” Squash is the trifecta of goodness, Bacon, Onion and Green Pepper paired with “spaghetti” then baked with tomato sauce.

My daddy used to make this when the weather cooled down.  Baked “Spaghetti” Squash is the perfect comfort food.  I’ve taken daddy’s recipe and modified it a bit.  It tastes amazing and is low carb, Gluten & Dairy free and Whole 30 Approved.  Let me just tell you this version tastes just as good as the original, maybe better we just won’t tell daddy that 😉

On a side note for those of you who regularly follow me I have a question.  Do you like it when I partner with sponsors of products? I would love to have your feedback to see if you enjoy the posts, and also if you like the giveaways. Share in the comments below or feel free to send me an e-mail at SassySouthernYankee@yahoo.com

Ingredients:

1/4 Lb Bacon, chopped

1/2 Lb Ham, diced

1 Onion, diced

1/2 Green Pepper, chopped

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1 Jar Marinara Sauce (I used Kirkland brand from Costco because it’s Organic and Whole 30 Approved)

2 Pre-cooked Spaghetti Squash (directions can be found on this recipe)

2 Cups Organic Baby Spinach

Preheat the oven to 400*

In a large skilled add the chopped bacon and ham; cook over medium heat just until the bacon and ham are just starting to brown. Next add the onion, green pepper, salt and pepper; cooking until the onions are just starting to become translucent.

Ham, Onion and Green Pepper

Once all the veggies and meats are heated add the spaghetti squash, spinach and sauce; stir until everything is evenly combined and heated through.

Next spray your favorite 9×13 pan (I use two smaller pans so I can freeze one for later) with some non stick spray.  Pour the spaghetti squash mixture into the casserole dish and bake at 400* for about 1 hour.

Since everything is pre-cooked you could just eat it out of the pot and not bake it but I love the curst that forms on top when you bake it.  If you’re not on the Whole 30 diet feel free to add parmesan cheese on top just before serving.

    I think it is great when you partner with sponsors. I didn’t participate in Choctober because I am focusing on a healthier lifestyle, but I still enjoyed the posts. 🙂
