This Baked "Spaghetti" Squash is the trifecta of goodness, Bacon, Onion and Green Pepper It tastes amazing and is low carb, Gluten and Dairy free and Whole 30 Approved.
Ingredients
  • ¼ Lb Bacon, chopped
  • ½ Lb Ham, diced
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • ½ Green Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Jar Marinara Sauce (I used Kirkland brand from Costco because it's Organic and Whole 30 Approved)
  • 2 Cups Baby Organic Spinach
  • 2 Pre-cooked Spaghetti Squash (directions can be found on this recipe)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400*
  2. 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.
  3. Once all the veggies and meats are heated add the spaghetti squash, spinach and sauce; stir until everything is evenly combined and heated through.
  4. Next spray your favorite 9x13 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.
