Pizza Meet Spaghetti… Squash!

OK. No, we aren’t having pizza… But as I devoured this dish I couldn’t help but to think of a meat lovers pizza and how similar the taste!

As you read in this blog I have been obsessed with finding new ways to fancy squash up a bit. Well, last night in the midst of unpacking from our recent move and realizing I need to feed the fam. I concocted a quick and easy dish with tons of protein whilst keeping it allergy free! { Can you say SuperMom? } 😉

Please forgive me, but since I wasn’t planning on blogging this dish I didn’t have my measuring spoons out. I will do my best to describe how much of each spice I used;)

Pizza Meat Spaghetti Squash

1 lb natural lean beef
2 pieces nitrate, nitrite free bacon ~~
Cooked, shredded, spaghetti squash
2 small cans or one regular can of natural tomato sauce
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Oregano
Basil
Sea salt & pepper

My squash was already cooked and set aside. Since that step was finished it made this recipe that much easier! So I browned my beef on the stove. When it was close to being done I drained the beef and put back on the heat. Then I added my bacon chopped into inch pieces. Stir around. When bacon was almost done cooking (not crunchy) I added my sauce. Stir. Sprinkle/shake over pan {twice} with onion powder. Same with garlic powder. Add a pinch of oregano and a pinch of basil. Let this simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes or so. Remove from heat. Taste test and be sure you don’t want to add any more of your spices as everyone’s taste buds like different things (mine LOVE garlic). Add your sea salt and pepper to taste as well. Then scoop a heaping amount of this onto some warmed spaghetti squash! Enjoy:)

I’m sure this would be delish with some real onion and garlic in place of the spices and next time I will try it {when unpacking is done}, but if you like quick and yummy this is your dish! Thanks again for following and I appreciate any feedback!
