|almost| paleo pepperoni pizza casserole

I've been in a cooking rut for a little while  about 6 or 7 months now. We have a pretty good rotation (mostly Whole30 dinners) but after going through this rotation over and over (and over and over) the same meals get old! So, thanks to Pinterest we added a couple of new things to our rotation last week and they were delicious! Plus, I still got to use my beloved spaghetti squash! Yummo!

|almost| paleo pepperoni pizza casserole

1 pound ground meat of your choice
8 ounces chopped pepperoni, divided
1 small onion, diced 
garlic powder to taste
1 teaspoon sea salt (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon EACH pepper, oregano, basil, and thyme
4 cups roasted spaghetti squash noodles 
2 cups favorite spaghetti sauce 
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese or pecorino romano, and few tablespoons extra for sprinkling

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the ground meat, 1/2 of the pepperoni, onion, and garlic powder.
  3. As the ground meat cooks, sprinkle in the seasonings.  Taste  (when cooked!) and add more to your liking if necessary.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the warm beef mixture, spaghetti sauce, squash threads, eggs, and cheese of choice.
  5. Place into a greased casserole dish ( I used a 8x8 and it was FULL).
  6. Top with the remaining pepperoni and a sprinkling of cheese.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbly
