Sausage & Pepper Spaghetti Squash Casserole

14 plated 3My family LOVES spaghetti squash. But eating the same thing day after day can get boring, even if it IS healthy. But by changing the protein, adding some more veggies and spices, and turning a dish into a casserole, we have a new family favorite!! My husband commented how this tastes just like a calzone and he LOVE the leftovers in his lunches!

I love casseroles because they are great for leftovers or to freeze half for future use, simplifying meal prep and clean up!! Win-win in my book!!

14 plated 1I took this casserole to a friend’s house for dinner. They LOVED it and raved about how it would be great for their teenage son who is diabetic. Because this casserole uses tons of veggies and protein with minimal carbs, it’s great for lots of “diets” and is a delicious addition to EVERY family’s menu!!

Note: This is NOT a Fixate recipe, but it uses ingredients from the Portion Fix food lists that have been measured to give the most accurate container count available.
