I found out multiple things over the weekend. The first one being I want to eat this recipe for the rest of my life. Seriously. It’s probably one of the best recipes I’ve ever made. Or tasted. I ate it for multiple meals and was extremely saddened when it was gone. And when it was, I had to eat cookies. Which led me understanding another fact. I love cookies. Actually, I love cookies from Cappello’s. You have to try these cookies. They are the best cookies to hit the paleo world. I want to make a home out of them.
Wait, that was only 2 facts. Here are some more that I learned:
- Gluten free pizza by Against the Grain should always be eaten on Friday nights. I kind of really really really want it to be a tradition.
- I hate working out in the morning. And since my workout Saturday morning sucked because I was pouting about being at the gym, I had to go back that night. And miraculously, that workout was wonderful. I don’t know how my 6am people do it.
- I wish I did lunges more often. That should be one of my New Year’s Resolutions. It won’t be, but it should.
- I hate cooking on the weekends.
- Ok, that’s all I really learned.
This weekend was uneventful…to some. To me, it was wonderful. Friday night, I fell asleep by 8:30pm. Saturday night, I bought Netflix and became newly obsessed with Orange is the New Black. I’ve watched 6 episodes so far and I want more. Apple TV is seriously the coolest invention ever. What’s the point in having cable anymore with that thing?? It’s so rad.
But the most thrilling part of the weekend was definitely Sunday. I got to sleep in, go to brunch, drink a bloody mary, then a mimosa, eat a scramble, then head to a friend’s house for more mimosas. And then some more. I haven’t had a Sunday Funday in a loooong time and it was awesome. So awesome that I don’t even really remember what I ate for dinner. Or what the sixth episode of Orange is the New Black was about. But I remember both were good. Real good.
Now go make this recipe. I’m seriously making it for the second time today because I want it so bad. Make it and tell me what you think. Even if you hate it. If you do though, you’re weird. Straight up weird.
- 1 large spaghetti squash (about 600 grams)
- 1 pound italian sausage
- ½ yellow onion, diced
- 1 cup pizza sauce (no sugar added)
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 3 eggs, whisked
- (optional: add anything you like with pizza: veggies, basil, even cheese if you do primal)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Place spaghetti squash cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the skin of the squash gives when you press on it. Then reduce oven heat to 350 degrees.
- Once squash is done cooking, remove threads and place in an 8×8 greased baking dish.
- Place a large pan over medium heat. Add italian sausage and onion. Cook until pink no longer remains in the sausage and it is broken up into pieces.
- Add pizza sauce, dried basil and salt and pepper to the pan and mix well.
- Add sausage mixture to the 8×8 dish and mix well with spaghetti squash threads.
- Lastly, add whisked eggs to the baking dish and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
- Place in oven and bake for 1 hour or until the top of the mixture forms a slight crust that doesn’t give when you press on it in the middle of the dish.
- Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
